Default Need to redo planted tank

I will have to redo my 58G tank due to dying of my plants and others covered
with algae.
What plants do you suggest for a 58G tank(froreground, midle ground,
background) and what quantities?
Will like to have some red, green plants. Tank will have driftwood and some
rocks. Theme is south american with angels and bolivian rams.

Thanks

There's no point in buying new plants until you get your co2 and ferts
sorted first. Not enough co2 is why you have algae in the frst place. Did I
mention co2?

I think is more of a lights problem.
I did not have enought light which can also be a cause for algae, even when
Co2 and ferts are presents.
The same can be said about a tank that is not well planted. Algae is present
in a tanl waiting for the ooportunity to grow and show itself.
In a well planted tank, the plants will out compete the algae for nutrients
and not the other way around.

The aforementioned can be said about a catchbasin that is not able-bodied planted. Algae is present in a tanl cat-and-mouse for the ooportunity to abound and appearance itself. In a able-bodied buried tank, the plants will out attempt the algae for nutrients and not the added way around.
