I bought like 14 different species of low light/easy/beginner plants when I started up my sorority. I'm having the best luck with Amazon Sword, Banana Plant, Anacharis (two different kinds, narrow leaf and regular leaf), Hornwort, and Vallisneria spiralis. My wisteria also seems to be doing well, but I bought it as a potted plant from Petco and all the roots melted off almost immediately after planting. Hoping it gets new roots because the tops of the plants look great. I also have Java Fern and Marimo and they look good too, they grow so slowly though and I'm getting a problem with diatoms right now and my java ferns are just covered!
As for ferts, the only thing I've dosed into my tank has been Seachem Flourish Complete. I'm not really sure if I should be dosing anything else though, like asukabetta said, the fish and fish food do a lot in that department too.
