What kind of lighting do you have? Here's a link to a really good Plant Guide
If you'll tell us a few more specs on the tank I'm sure people will chime in with suggestions.

OK, That's a start do you know the wattage? How about a picture of the light showing the bulbs. Also a picture of the tank would help The more information you can give us the more we can help.

You've been asked a few questions which you still have not answered. Without more information, your question is just way to general. There are literally a hundred or two hundred different plants you could use depending on your light and other tank conditions, the type of look you want, and what you like.

well, I can't see the pic, as it requires a password. Just embed it in the thread.

It's already been asked, but what is the wattage?

Do you want it to look like the actual rain forest, or an amazonian biotope?

EDIT: I misread something

Also, are you using co2 (pressurized or diy)? Ferts?

What is the full bioload in this tank? I know you have angels, but how many/what else is in there?
