Good Plants for that Jungle Look?

As you can see, my planted tank is looking a little bare. What are some good plants for that lush, jungle look?

What kinds of lights are you using? The standard aquarium bulbs that came with the hood or do you have the specialty ones for planted tanks? Different plants have different lighting requirements and one that has higher requirements will not grow well in a low light situation

Water lettuce gets nice long roots that really help that dense jungle look.

I've got two 10 watt 6500k light bulbs in the hood.

Wisteria, vals, cabomba, anacharis, crypts, ludwiga, rotala, dwarf sag, scarlet temple, Hygrophilia would all fill in and look great in there. As well as some type of moss on the rock.
