what good plants?

I have a 10 gallon with 2 aponogeton plants growing. I have 3 guppies and 4 bettas and i need more plants but i dont have a hood and i like the open top so i wont be getting a light. What plants can i have that can survive on 5+ hours of natural light.

My anacharis hasn't died yet in the shrimp tank. It gets less hours of natural light than your tank.

But generally go for slow growers like java moss, marimo moss, some dwarf anubias. Some believe hornwort can survive in a low light tank but I have yet to see my money come growing back out of the pitiful scraps I have left.

Anubias, Java Fern, and Marimo moss balls are very easy care.

Water wisteria is also pretty easy it can be left floating.

Moss I find a bit finicky.

hornwort, salvinia minima or calcutta, java moss, xmas moss, frogbit, duckweed, anacharis, anubias.

maybe rotala rotundifiolia, low light crypts, echinodoris bleheri, kind of on the borderline though ive grown these with natural daylight outdoors.
