I am looking for some good plants that will act as nutrient sponges as I am struggling with a minor green water problem right now.

I'm curious... Why avoid duckweed? I have it in my daughter's new tank and I was hoping that it would be a good nutrient sink for her 20H since even though her tank is fully planted, many of the plants are slow growers.

It's a pest to most people. It's extremely difficult to get rid of, not attractive at all and readily outcompetes other plants for light with much success.

Hygro is a sponge for sure. But I don't think it will help your green water problem. Although in any tank that I've ever owned that had a large amount of hygo in it never seemd to have much algae in it. So it may help a bit.
