Basically I want to add to this tank. right now i have 2.66 Watts/gallon and a diy CO2. the plants are wisteria, bacopa carolina, and HM. I want to add some red plants (Alternanthera reineckii ''roseafolia' and Ludwigia glandulosa) and some kind of grass.
I don't think you have enough light for very red plants like reineckii. I have a tank similar to yours and the reineckii did not last in my tank. The bacopa carolina will get more red under the leaves if iron or Flourish comprehensive is added. Ludwigia arcuata would work if you added iron. The glandulosa will need more light than you have.

For ground cover Marsilea minuta would work. I saw hoppycalif growing it in low light.
