Any recommendations of plants that thrive in low to medium light and are easy to care for???
:) There are many plants that are low- med light.
Crypts propagate fairly quickly. And are low-med light. They also look pretty.
Anubias and Javafern and Java moss grows slowwwww but are also lowlight
Brazillian pennywort can be fairly pretty and add some variation.
Tiger lilies banana lilies are great too.
Rotala and some stem plants ...
Naja grass, Hornwort, fanwort, Elodea do pretty well :)
the list goes on....

Yeah I love my dwarf Saggitaria, it looks great around my rock cave and it grows fast. My hornwort grows like its going out of style, I need to trim it like every other day.

Brazillian Pennywort

Chistmas moss
Flame moss
Java moss (just gave away half only in 2.5)
Fissidens (almost half dead)
Susswassertang (in QT)

Naja Grass (tiny bit)
Hornwort (tiny bit)
Myrio (tiny bit)

Java Fern ... trident
Java fern
Philippine fern (represent!)

Salvinia
Duckweed (only in 2.5 I grow it for the foster goldfish at workplace)
Frogbit
Dwarf water lettuce
Water wisteria
Asian water grass

Broadleaf water wisteria

Water sprite

And red root floaters en route to me now.

I have some stem plants in my Mason jar that I think parrot's feather and a rotala? I don't know the names of and 4 riparium plants

Bacopa moniere
Althernera Josephs's coat
Aluminum plant
Dwarf ruellia (like a nano palm tree!)

I have spent waaaaaaay more on plants than bettas!

I killed mini pellia.

marimo moss ball
And two small rhizome plants that I assume are Anubias of some kind -- they were freebies.
