Hey everyone! I am interested in adding two more plants into my aquarium that are not green. Since all of my plants now are currently green I would like a little colorful contrast in my tank :cool: That being said, what are some of your suggestions? Also where would you recommend purchasing the plants?
Helpful Tank Specs:
-55 Gallon
-CO2 Injected
-Flourite Substrate
-11 hour lighting (2 x 65W Coralife Deluxe CFL)
-AquariumPlants.com Total Substrate Pellets Fertilizer

Ludwigia repens, Alternathera reinickii, are fairly easy red plants. Various C. wendtiis have interesting veination/coloration. Look through the plantfinder here on the site for colorful plants. As to where to buy them, my favorite place is here in the for sale forum, great varieties, choices and usually very healthy plants from fellow hobbyists.

I second the L. repens. Hygro 'bold' has good color, but IME it's more 'leggy' than 'sunset' or other hygro's (anyone else have that experience? ) . Proserpinaca palustris and P. pectinata have good color as well in the right conditions.

I have a few stems of stuff you might be interested in. PM'ing you now.
