Exclamation Fasting growing plants

I'm REALLY tried of my tank looking sooo bare and me being broke. I want nice looking fasting growing plants. I'm going to take back my ludwiga and vals, because they're not doing like they should. I want to buy some more green Cabomba, because I, Myself messed it up buy not letting the poor plant settle. I'm thinking of trying to replace the vals with onion plants and get some sort of sagittaria to fill in the mid-ground. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks

Sn= I need a good floating plant, the pennywort just won't spread!! Ohhh!! I also forgot to add I went to the pet store where I bought my 55 and I found some glass tops. They're made buy company so they should fit perfect.

I agree with redchigh, if various plants are not doing well, something is missing. Vallisneria, pennywort and cabomba are all fast-growing. We can considder what if you provide some data. Lighting (type, number, K, watts...), tank size, tap water GH, tank pH, temperature. And what fertilizers if any are being added and how often.

Lighting= duel t8 6500k bulbs 32watts, Tank= 55 gallon, GH,ph=no test kit Temperature=76 Ferts= Flourish comp and Flourish root tabs. My water is soft thought.

I used to have some, but some of my fish ate it. I might give it another go, I have different fish now.

Nothing wrong here. Would help to know the GH of the tap water, can you get this from the water people? Can you explain the problem with the plants, or attach some photos?
