I still don't know a whole lot about plants, but those are three I will be ordering... I'm not sure any are fast growing and will do much for water quality, though. If you are looking for those, I'd go for stem plants or floaters, but you probably won't get the look you are going for.
If research some plants, their difficulty levels, light/temp needs, how they propagate, etc... It'll be good to know before you get them. You can also look up some pictures of them. I am going for beginner plants since I have never had plants before..
+2 on anubias-Its a low light plan. Don't plant it deeply, just the roots. If you bury the base of the plant, it'll rot. You will often find them at the petcos on driftwood. This tank is all gravel, and the green rounded leaf plants are anubias.. They are good for absorbing nitrates, too!

Reason: can't spel. :P
A lot of the common aquatic plants have small or elongated leaves. But there are a lot of plants that do have big leaves. Go to www.plantedtank.net and they have a tab called "plants" and there are hundreds of plant profiles there with pictures and comments by people who have kept those plants. You might have to shop in places other than pet stores for a lot of them, though. Like a fish store or online.
