Question Good plants or not?

We have been doing somme research, and we were thinking of these:
Dwarf Baby Tears
Cabomba (I really like this, but I think it requires CO2)
Java Fern
A nana or 2
and
a moss ball

These would go in a 10 gal. What are other good beginner plants? We are new to this whole live plant thing lol

Ugh nevermind on the Cabomba... I do not want to trim it multiple times a week!

I had some cabomba, it grows really fast and looks really nice. Easy to grow but kind of messy. Doesn't require Co2 and won't require you to trim it multiple times per week unless you are anal about keeping it the same height

Dwarf Baby Tears can be a little tough to grow. It's a plant that requires a lot of light.

Java Ferns and Nanas, on the other hand, are sturdy, easy to grow plants.

If you're looking for something for the foreground that will spread, Dwarf Amazon Chain Swords usually work well.

We picked the Dwarf Baby Tears because my fiance absolutely LOVES the look of them. Is there something that looks similar?
