Dark green plant suggestions?

727 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Sharkfood
Hi all,
anyone have any suggestions for dark green and leafy plants?

My current list is a combo of common/scientific names because i'm feeling lazy:

Java Fern
Philippine Java fern
Oakleaf Watersprite
Jungle Val
Val nana
Staurogyne Repens
xmas moss
Phoenix moss
Fissidens Geppi
Blyxa Japonica
Hygrophila Polysperma
Hygrophila Corymbosa 'compact'
Crypt Spiralis
Crypto Undulata
Crypt Wendtii 'Green'
Crinum Natans
Downoi (Not doing too hot right now)
E. Tenellus Micro

Most of the ferns haven't grown in yet. But I think there are too many light green plants. Will post recent pics soon to help along your suggestions. There are semi-recent ones on my tank journal link below. Tia everyone!

My anubias always stayed dark green unless it has some sort of deficiency. Also various crypts and swords.
any other suggestions? Anyone..? Anyone..? Bueller..? Bueller..?
Anubias is dark green, and can look very nice, but in my experience you want to keep it shaded. It seems to accrue spot algae if unshaded in a high tech tank.
