    Hygrophila polysperma or hygrophila difformis. Rapid growth and really easy care :) Anubias coffefolia is a nice change from nana if you can find it that's always nice too. Good luck!

    I would add rotala rotundifolia or rotala indica, very fast growing beautiful stem plants.:)
    Anubias are great too, like nahrie said, coffefolia is pretty nice, I haven't kept that yet, nana, giant barteri, and barteri are pretty cool too.;)

    H. difformis = wisteria ;)

    Anyways, I'll add Vallisneria to the mix. One of the easiest plants I've ever had, that's for sure...

    +1 on that, I totally forgot to add that:)

    Jungle Vals are best for me, start with 10 and end up with 100+ in 2-3 months:)

    I personally dislike corkscrew vals as they look weird IMO, and look as if they are dying:).................in circular patterns

    Very pretty tank, when it fills in it will be outstanding. Are you using root tabs?

    I would use seachem flourish root tabs, and flourish excel for ferts. I have had great exper. with them for plants. I would get some MTS to stir up your substrate a bit since it is sand.
