I'm looking for some original "front of the tank" plants. Max 3-4". If it is red, it is even better.

I already have some aquarium grass (sorry I'm not sure of the name ops: ) and I'll order some Glossostigma elatinoides.

If it is a rare species, it is even better

I have a 33g, 60w (it is possible to upgrade at 90w). Canister filter eheim 2215, pH 6.6, flourish excel, flourish iron, flourish potassium, flourish,Hagen's NPK.

Any ideas?

Tarkins, I think that's the trick of aquatic gardening and experi(-ments)(-ence). I can give you some hints: Java Moss, hairgrass, Lilaeopsis novea-zealandiae, Echinodorus tenellus, Riccia Fluitans (tied down), some small cryptocoryne species, Micranthemum micranthemoides, or frequently topped stemplant like hygrophila diffornis or lobelia cardinalis (very common here in Holland). Succes with the foreground of your tank!!

Maybe some of the smaller crypt species?
