Wisteria (Hygrophilia difformis)
Java fern, regular
crypt wendtii
an aponogeton or two
Bacopa
Echinodorus (Sword plant) - you could keep a red melon or' Kleiner Bar'
Myriophyllum mattogrossense - grows fast and fills in

There are tons of choices. For glosso you need high light and CO2. Take a look at the forum for large tanks. Many of them look jungle like (including mine). You can see what plants people have in their tanks for ideas Take a look at the plant finder for growing conditions. Happy hunting!

The plant I bought as parrots feather is way different from what I have bought as Myriophyllum mattogrossense.

I do love the parrots feather's emersed form but not so much it's submerged form.

The Myriophyllum mattogrossense is one of my favorite myrios, except that I just can't handle is insane growth. I doubt there is a myrio out there that looks as fine, full and beautiful! IMHO :D
