You should try anubias and rotala
Rotala is supposed to only grow in high lights, but my tank only has 15 watts and it is growing well with just water column ferts..I have to trim it weekly/every other week.It doesn't seem to get as red in low light, but it is still really pretty.

That is a good idea! I might push the gravel up in the back and leave the middle front area where it's not so planted sand for the corydoras.

It looks like there is a stone in the back left. You could move it forward and some of the tall stem plants back to fill that space.
I have also read that you might eventually need to root the cuttings and toss the older stems--just if they start looking straggly.
I will have to look into buying petite anubias online...I doubt i'll be able to find it locally.In the back left is my coconut cave. My fish really loves that cave.
I may move it forward a little though so I can fill that gap.
You all have great ideas! Thanks so much!
