I am looking to replace a background sagittaria subulata on my 12gl fluval edge (video here <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eNcrOREl0g> because it grows way too fast and keeps shooting out runners all over. I am looking for a red tall plant that would add some color and be easy to maintain. It needs to be small and grow tall up to 12-13 inches (a red tiger lotus for example wouldn't work because it spreads too wide). A slow grower would be appreciated. Any plant experts here that can recommend options? Thanks!

ludwigia "red" aka ludwigia hybrid, sometimes mistaken as ruben..

grows well in low light or in high light, stays red in just about every condition i've ever seen.. doesn't branch too much and leaf size is decent.

Thanks guys. How about height? I am looking for a plant that grows up and not spread wide...
