Echinodorus, Bucephalandra, Bolbitis, Crinum, Cryptocoryne, and some others of the stem variety (Rotala rotundifolia, many types of Hygrophila, Ludwigia repens, etc.). Also, there are many interesting types of Java Fern and Anubias. I know that regular Java Fern can get boring, but there is Trident, Windelov, Needle Leaf, Narrow Leaf, Broad Leaf, Thor's Hammer, and many more. The aforementioned floating plants and mosses would work as well. It is a common misconception that there aren't many low light plants as that claim is false. Low light slows growth for many plants due to rate of photosynthesis, and although you couldn't grow demanding stem plants in low light, CO2
, flow, and nutrients are important as well.
