Default Big plants?

Which plants grow big (bushy), but not too tall? I'm going to have to redo

maintenance.



Cryptocoryne wendtii.



I'll second the Cryotocorne wendtii suggestion. They're tough, they
spread, and they don't grow too large. Actually, their size seems to
depend on aquarium conditions. Here, in one smallish goldfish aquarium
they're a few inches tall but cover the bottom. In the plant aquarium
they're reaching 10 inches in height and fill about 1/6 of the bottom area.

They're great plants, all descended from a few specimens I was given in
1991.
