Plant suggestions

I want to invest in live plants, but I want very low maintenance plants that donít require high-end lighting because all I have is a Beamswork EA FSpec. Please give me your suggestions.

Tank size?
Substrate?
CO2?
Fertilizers?
Excel / Metricide?

Stem plants vs broad leaved plants vs grasses vs carpet? What do you like?

Beamswork is plenty of light for many simple plants...

Bacopa
Crpyts
Swords
Sagitteria
Myriophyllum
Rotala rotundipholia
Lloydiella
Ludwigia repens
Hygrophila corymbosa compact
Hygrophila
Buce
Java Fern
Anubia
Any moss
Bolbitus
Echinodorus tenellus
Vallisnaria

Most of those are simple / low tech capable plants...

Tank size is 29 gallons tall and I would prefer not to use fertilizer but I can if I need to. Types of leaves donít really matter to me and I can do grasses or carpets.

I would recommend Italian vallisneria. They have a jungle kind of look to them and grow very fast. They do not require root tabs or fertilizer.
