Ludwigia sp. Red and Ludwigia sp. Rubin both get and stay red given the right amount of light and other nutrients. Not exactly sure what kind of lighting or nutrients they need specifically, so best to leave that to someone else. Should get you started though.

I'm dosing with Green Leaf pps-pro, running pressurized c02 at 2 bps and have both red ludwigia and Alternanthera Reineckii, both of which are growing nicely...beautiful plants

+1 I have both of those plants they stay red even in my shrimp tanks, no CO2, no ferts dosing other than occasional root tab, low light. Definitely get some of these.
