Byron. Your 90g Amazonian rainforest I really like. The small plants in front, Sagittaria Sub. dwarf? I like it for foreground. I also have some others I found.

Bacopa Australis
Anubias Barteri var.
Java moss
and of course the Sagittaria Sub.

The smaller plant across the substrate in my 90g is Echinodorus tenellus. In the 115g it is E. quadricostatus, very similar but slightly wider and longer leaves; often sold as E. tenellus [that's how I came up with it].

I have a Sagitarria in the 90g, the taller plant on the far left and in a couple of spots mid-tank, it is identical to the E. tenellus but twice the height. Not sure of the exact species, it was sold as S. subulata; but Hiscock reports that there are several varieties of this species.

Java Moss I have in all three tanks, on some of the bogwood. It arrived on the wood. Some grows incredibly fast, other bits slowly. Of course, the slower may be a different plant.

I'm not familiar with the Bacopa species, which is to say never kept it. Anubias barteri I probably have, I bought it labeled as A. nana which Hiscock says is a variation of A. barteri. It is currently in my spare 33g, but I'm attaching a photo of the 33g in its former life when it was full of this plant. I had over three feet of rhizome from one little plant I bought in 1998 or maybe 1999, and I cut it apart to fill the 33g in 2008. A true shade plant, it needs floating plant cover or it does not do well. And brush algae finds this plant first, perhaps because the leaves are so tough.
