background plants?

Hey i was wondering if anyone knows of any low-light plants that will be big enough to use as a background plant? Like, i dont have a background so you can see the tubes and such from my filter and i want to cover it up without getting a background. so something that's big but can be planted fairly close together?

anubias are the ultimate low light plant ,but they are expensive,hard to find, rubbery and prone to algea i hav 4 large contrasting SWORDS, now theres a mid light plant thats hardy and fast growing its the most popular BG plant.go to aquarium plants.com under background and so on...theres a low-light category as well.oh, wisteria also reached 18" in 7 weeks i have to cut alot. theres also a tall flat grass,i forget the name but it 's sold tall and mine grew 3" in a few months.those are all BG full too.

Oh, I have a cryptocoryne spiralis that is tall and does very well in my low light planted tank. It is in eco-complete gravel though, so maybe some root tabs if you feel it needs it.

You can see it in the back right corner of the tank in my avatar.

cool, ill look into those plants. I have a couple of swords now but i feel like tehy grow wide more than they grow tall since mine kinda spreads out more than it goes up.
