But all those species don't have any colourful patterns, they're just green.

I would also look into Cryptocoryne. There are a lot of species and breeds that have intensive colours and patterns. They also grow in low light, even prefer it.

Other plants that come to my mind and don't necessarily grow huge, tolerate wet to moist climate and have intensive colours and patterns are: Argostemma, Begonia, Fittonia. Argostemma are not really easy to come by though.
Thy for the answer mate! I already tryed 1 Cryptocoryne type! Its died out! The Anubias just grow very well!(might because its need way less light!) I use drip-wall technic and a most of regular tropical plants just might will die too! Thats why i searching aqua plants.
