2.5 gallon planted tank!

So I just wanted to show off my creation and see what you guys think! Currently I have hornswort, banana plant, anubias, argentine sword, and kyoto. Fish are an electric blue balloon ram, cherry barb, 2 guppies, and an oto! I would like to get a plant that is red to add some variety! Any suggestions?

Looks very pretty but you do know it is way overstocked? I love the sand

Too many tanks? GASP! How could that be?

Thank you! Yes I am aware of the overstocking issue. I don't plan on adding any more fish, just some pretty plants! Lets just say I got excited in the beginning before I knew what I was doing and bought too many fish...

No worries I did that too. I'd get your fish a bigger tank though, and you have even more options to create another stunning tank!

I am working on getting a 10 gallon tank sometime in the near future, only problem is space! I figure I will plan it out first and then go for it.

Yup, I hear you! Space is always an issue for me too.

Can you recommend any red plants for my tank? I have the perfect spot in the back right corner but I just don't know what would work!

I like the look of that one. Kinda grassy but not as red from the pictures I've seen. I'm pretty sure I have a good enough light to get a really colorful plant in there!
