If you can find a nymphaea, commonly called a water lily, I'd get that :) Most of the ones sold in aquarium shops have the red leaves and they look so beautiful contrasting with the green of the swords. Another nice contrast is cryptocorne wendtii. This have a deep bronzy coloured leaf, which again contrasts with the swords, although the shape of this leaf is like the swords, whereas the nymphaea is a round leaf, so more contrast!

A stem plant that I like is rotala indica. It turns a nice pinkish once it reaches the top near the lights. It is very fine leaved.
