Another plant question!

I have some Moneywort in my tank now, it is growing like crazy and the lower leafs are starting to get transparent and fall off and making a REAL mess!

Anyone have a suggestion for "less" messy plant. I have 2 clumps in there now and they have grown about 3 inches outside of the water already, (after doing some research I found they are prolific growers)

Thanks in advance

All plants have a type of die off of the lower leaves thats just part of their life cycle..some worse than others.....and sometimes it can be cause from the lower leaves being shaded too much by the upper section, or they lack a nutrient.

Other plants that will tolerate low light conditions, water wisteria, mexican oak leaf, hygrophilia, jave fern, java moss, naja grass, to name a few....

Thanks oldfishlady. I separated the plants a bit more so they get more light down in the lower sections. If I don't see any improvement I will try some of the types you mentioned.
