No pics, but Alternanthera reineckii (scarlet temple/scarlet hygro) and purple cabomba are super common red plants.

Red tiger lotus, melon sword, flame sword, crypt wendtii "bronze", Ludwigia repens, and rotala wallichii...to name a few.

You should have asked me! I could have dropped in some ludwigia sp. red and some alternanthera reineckii mini with the light I shipped you yesterday. Both are nice red plants. The bigger leaved deep red plant in the back left is the ludwigia and the red one in the middle is the a.r. mini.

The orangish plant on the left is hygrophila pinnatifida.

Red root floater is a really cool floating plant we use.
