Definately vals and swords will do well in a current. Some others to try would be Crypts and Wisteria. Red Wendtii could be an excellent one to try. When I had mine it was in front of the outflow of my HOB filter and it grew to a huge size. It also stayed cleaner and looked better than the plants in the slower moving areas of the tank.

That's good to know. I ordered quite a few of each of those plants and expect them to arrive any day now. I'm having a problem with brown algae lately and am hoping by adding more plants there will be more competition for the nutrients in the water. Not to mention I love the looks of a heavily planted tank. I tired Java ferns and even tho everything I've read says they are the easiest to maintain mine turned to see thru mush in just a few days.

Yeah, my java ferns are not so easy to keep as I thought. I have heard others with the same complaints too. I have a crypt red wendtii and it is where the water comes out of my HOB filter. It is doing great and is the best looking and easiest to care for plant in my tank. I would definitely recommend this plant, and I will be getting some more for my new project tank. Good luck. :)
