I am looking for a short, 4-5inches tall, bushy plant. I want to put it in a corner and the back middle for a small backdrop for my tank. I have taller things on either side already. If possible I would like something that's red, but it's not necessary.

You could do Rotala and if kept properly you could go it short and bushy

How would I keep it properly to make it bushy?

For starters a good light and fertilizer, after that it comes down to your trimming. I would start looking up what a “leaf node” is to get the best understanding on where to cut and eventually they will start growing out instead of up

Limnophila is a good plant, although it grows tall but you always can cut it. It does much better with high wattage and fertilizers.
