Im looking for some good options on South |American plants for my 75g.

Lighting:Odyssea T5HO Florescent 6500k 2x 54watt bulbs

currently I have 21 swords grown emerged so I cut the leaves off [as the tank was just slim].
10 corkscrew vals

Im looking for floaters, stems and other options.

It will be home to rummynose, hatchets, G.B. Rams, Bronze corys and ottos

Careful with the swords. I did that with my first amazon sword and it didn't like it at all (killed it). Not sure if corkscrew vals are SA but E. vesuvius or E. angustifolia is awfully similar and it's a SA plant.

Amazon frogbit or salvinia minima for floaters. Much more interesting that duckweed, and much easier to control.

Not too many options in the stems as they're mostly medium/high light and you're on the low end. Some ludwigias do okay in lower light.

I'm pretty certain Rotala rotundifolia would grow in that amount of light. I'm confident Brazilian Pennywort (Hydrocoytle leucocephila) would work as well--a favorite stem plant of mine.
