Plant suggestions

I rearranged a few things in my tank and want to add some plants. I want to eventually feel that there is enough plant cover so that I can remove the water lettuce because I'm tired of them.

A few suggestions needed...

What would you put on Green?

What would you put on Red? Or continue jungle Val?

What would you put on Blue?

What would you put on Yellow? If anything..java fern?

I am hoping more leaves will grow on my sword (Purple) to fill that space In a bit. And that the crypts in the front right grow in as well but they are SLOW!

Oh and I don't mind trimming, I would prefer it to extremely slow growing.

Plant suggestions

I would do Rotala Indica or bacopa Carolina for red. Both grow tall and bacopa can get pretty bushy and thick.

Green- dwarf Hairgrass

Blue- Staurogyne Repens

Yellow- Java moss or other moss types.

Good suggestions! I love the look of the repens. Very cool carpet look. Same with hair grass however I've tried it before and it flopped. Although at the time I didn't know what ferts were so that was prob the issue. Lol

And I was actually thinking bacoba for the back and now it's confirmed.

And I can defiantly get some moss for that wood I guess Java fern would get too big right there.

Yeah I thought of it but I figured it was too bulky up like that.
