Red plant advice

I am looking to add different colors to my tank, all the plants I have now are all green. I was thinking about looking for some reds and maybe other colors as well. Any suggestions for a some colorful plants for my tank?

90 gallons
No C02 as I have a wet/dry filter
Temp will be 78-82
Have a florite substrate
Using a aqualife dual t5 lighting system, seems bright so I think I can grow most stuff although baby tears didn't work out.

Thank you guys for the info, rivercats your tank is amazing. Very similar to what I have pictured for mine, I have a lot of work to do, but after seeing yours i know it will be worth it.
