For some reason, I always click "add new post" instead of making a new topic. Either this site is glitched or I'm a serious idiot.
I'll answer your question anyways... my best.
"I am concerned that my fish will not take advantage of any new plants added." - I don't understand that part of your question.
But some plants I'd recommend are corkscrew valsneria for the back. I really think it's a beautiful plant. Not sure on the lighting requirements. Some of my crypts are pretty large and swords. You might want to try some stem plants though. I can't think of any, atm, maybe some water wisteria, pennywort, moneywort, that kinda stuff. :)
For foreground, you may want some dwarf saggitaria, or some type of aquatic grass or something.
Also, if you have rocks or driftwood, you could add some anubias. They like very low light and are nice plants.
Maybe you could do a small java moss wall on the back or something too. Just throwing out ideas.
Make sure you have a full spectrum light bulb though too. Since you only have a crypt atm (I believe wendtii is a type of crypt? I know I have one but lol idk which of my crypts it is. :p), it may be surviving even with the wrong kind of light since it requires low lighting in general. Just letting you know this, because idk this was the mistake I made a long time ago when I tried plants. Don't want others to make it.
Btw, all plants need CO2, im assuming you mean added CO2. your fish will produce sufficient CO2 probably.
