Petco has better plant selection for sure. A lot of petsmart's plants are not aquatic. Although I had some gold ribbon that lived submerged for a good while. :D

Like I just said, research and write down good low light and hardy plants and look for those.

I bought a java fern that came in one of the petco tubes. It was labelled as "tropica fern" some of them are aquatic but most are bog plants so do your research. So far the plant has been doing great. And for the light make sure to use a floureent bulb with a 6500k Kelvin temperature. They are usually lablled as "daylight" and cost $5-6. They're not specially for aquariums just regular GE bulbs.
