You could do some crypts, otherwise giant baby tears has pops of pink on it in higher lighting.

Following along for more answers. I have the same light. What about Red Tiger Lotus? I don't see that discussed much here.

I agree, Red tiger lotus is a great choice for sure. If you have the lighting, ludwigia dark red, glandulosa, hygro narrow, ammania gracilis, ludwigia cuba.

I had to move my Cryptocorne Wendi because it did not like the lighting change. The leaves cupped.

I know crypts have a tendency of being sensitive to changes, but don't they usually bounce back well?

I like Bacopa caroliniana and star repens for their bright green coloration. Used as a background and foreground plant, respectively, they contrast well against pinks and reds.
