Jabba, jaival : current plants are Anubias, crypts, H.pinnatifida, H.corymbosa, ludwigia ovalis, Xmas moss.
Considering options for fore ground.
Actually, the lights are same. one light is faulty and I think it got switched off when photo was taken.

+1 Jabba. You can arrange plants in such a way that you control the light reaching them. Using floating plants, shade of driftwood shade of taller plants etc. The throw of light can also help you decide where to place plants.
About CO2... IMO it is better to go the CO2 way because that will keep algae in check. And you have high light, so CO2 will be my recommendation. If you don't want CO2 then you will have to tweak your lights. For your tank, IMO two 36W PLLs with good reflectors should do for a non CO2 set up and the kind of plants you have. In which case you can use some of the grass varieties for your foreground instead of 'mat' carpets. That setup will save you a lot of headache.
But you seem to be the impatient kind (don't take it wrong ). So go with CO2.
