Need a plant!

Today I am going to find a new play for my tank because I just found that the one I have tends to rust (thanks to a helpful post on this forum). Any ideas on what it should look like? I am getting it from petsmart. This is a pic of my tank, the big leafed green one on the left is the one I am replacing. Please only fake plant suggestions for now :)

I'd look on the Petsmart website. Look for 5 star silk plants and look at the reviews.

Amazon Sword or Java Fern. I have never seen Petsmarts selection. Petco usually has some decent Amazon Swords and Java Ferns available. And you can buy them either small, medium, or large. Just remember they will grow. Root tabs are suggested.

stay away from anything you are not sure about, or seems like a non aquatic plant. Both Petco and PetSmart are notorious for selling non-aquatic plants as aquatic plants. I fell for it once.

But honestly your plastic one looks like an Amazon Sword. I have a group of them in my tank.

Whoops sorry, I didn't see that you did not want a live plant. I think you should give one a try :)

Hope it's not too late to answer, I think your fish would appreciate some taller plants to rest on, and since most of what you have is short, some taller stuff will give more variety.
