Looking for a plant with roundish, larger leaves

So, I have things like java fern, microsword, amazon sword. I'm looking for some different leaf shapes since everything I have is rather oblong.

My tanks are all low-tech, low light. Really looking for something with larger sort of round shaped leaves to add some contrast. Any suggestions?

Any lotus; Nymphaea micrantha/stella/zenkeri, lobelia cardinalis, round leafed and quite easily grown in low tech. Lotus likes more lighting for good coloration though.

Thank you! I had seen photos of a plant that I liked but no name. It was Nympaea sp. rubra. Now I just have to decide if I want to increase my light to allow me to keep this.

Thank you guys for the suggestions, probably the previous suggestions are more appropriate for my current setups. Now to decide if I want to change up to get lotus or not or just go with something else.
