Thanks in advance :)
In my tanks (all low light) I have java fern, java moss, anubias barteri var nana and Elodea. The elodea is fast growing but the other three are fairly slow growing and in a small tank you want something slow growing.
The Java fern, moss and anubias do better attached to rocks or wood or something but I just put the elodea in the gravel (nothing special, no CO2, no extra light except natural light) and it's rooted and growing :)
