What other plants work well in terreriums?

The two plants on the front side of the tank have been in there for almost a year and we just added the tall plant in the back. The first two have done really well in the tank, I was at first concernced when the water changed to a redish tint but the inhabitants were un affected by it. So I did regular water changes and the water cleared up after about a month.



My question would be what kind of plants could I use that compliment this tank. I really want something that will grow on the bottom of the tank to cover the gravel.

And also a plant to grow on the wood in the tank.

Try Riccia, or if you want something a little taller, go for java moss.

Creeping fig. There are several leaf-shaped varieties.
