Looking to add some color...

I want to add some color to my 20 gallon long. I have a 30 inch planted plus hanging a couple inches above the tank. I have pressurized CO2 and I EI dose the tank. I know that many red plants require extra iron which is not a problem I have plenty of dry ferts laying around. Can you guys help me find some plants that will work with my set up?
Thanks
Joe

Sunset hygro looks really good! Nice pinkish red veins.

Ludwigia sp red is really easy to grow and keep red. Also pretty inexpensive.
