Plant suggestions?


So I have a 10g sterbai cory tank, and though there are a few plants, it still looks pretty bare.

I've been wanting to try out a carpeting plant, but I still need the cories to be able to find food. Can they find it within, say, dwarf hair grass? Will carpeting plants choke out my other, larger ones? Also, I'd like to try floating plants but my LFS hasn't had them in stock any of the times I've checked, so if anyone knows of a place where I can get frogbit or giant duckweed, that would also be very helpful.

Currently in the tank: Tiger lotus, lots of hornwort (mostly planted, some floating clumps), three moss balls, some purple/green cambomba, and what I believe is a cryptocoryne spiralis.

Ideally, I'd love a plant that either carpets, floats, or contrasts with the hornwort (planted all across the back, and relatively tall), like a purple/red plant with somewhat rounder leaves.

Thanks for your time!
