Plant questions

A simple question (which I'm sure a search would reveal, but in the effort of most up-to-date information, this post comes) but, what kind of plants require minimal maintenance, are ideal for multi-aquatic life, and would not simply be eaten away by (let's just say) shrimp?

With the above questions in mind, what kind of light source would be ideal for said plants?

Thanks in advance.

You still should have a 6500-7500k light for any plants, or you get slow growth.

Anacharis, hornwort, water wisteria, anubias, java fern, crypts, and rotala and ludwigia are just some. It really depends on what you have around you. If you only have a petstore, you are gonna be more limited. I have a LFS that is focused on reef and plants so I have access to most plants.

Would any of those plants get away with not being traditionally planted underwater?

Floating plants are ones that you don't have to (or shouldn't) bury in the substrate. Java fern, hornwort, anubias are a few.
