First planted tank help?

Hello, I want to plant my 10 gallon tank. I am a complete noob when it comes to aquatic plants. The tank will be divided as soon as the outflow of the main filter can be reduced. What plants would you recommend to me?

Tank size: 10 Gallons
Light: Perfect-A-Lamp F15T8 15W
Substrate: Colored gravel

Java moss is amazing in that it's near impossible to kill (trust me, in our old tank, we tried EVERYTHING and we always had more than we needed lol). I put some hygros in my new NPT and so far they're thriving too. I just pushed the stems into the substrate and they sprouted roots! Plus they look nice too!

any anibus, java fern, money wort, any of the hygro family, swords ect.... there are plenty of low light plant options. Do your research into proper lighting as that is the make it or break it factor with planted tanks. Hornwort is a great floating plant and bettas love it.
