I need some assistance.

I started out my planted tank with faster growing plants in order to establish the tank and prevent an algae outbreak. Well, it seems to have worked - a little too well in fact. Now, I'm looking to move out the faster growing plants and replace them with slow/medium growing alternatives. Could someone please list some of the more common slow/medium grow plants; particularly, the stem/bunch variety?

Often times one person's slow growers are another one's weeds. But here's a few slower ones:

Proserpinaca palustris
Blyxa aubertii
Blyxa japonica
Limnophila aromatica
Amania 'bonsai' type
Cyperus helferi

Look through the plantfinder. You should be able to get lots of info on this there.
