Question Low light plants?

I have a 2 gallon bowl that Magico usually resides in, though I took him out recently to treat him for a shredded tail (little goof decided to attack his tail overnight -.-) I had to move the bowl from a high-light area to a lower light area, so I decided to buy all new plants for it. I considered Java Fern and Anubias, but all but one fern at my usual store had some horrible black looking stuff covering the leaves, and the Anubias was $7, for just one, definitely out of my price range. I'm going to transfer the mossball from Opale's tank into the bowl, but can anyone suggest any other, preferably inexpensive, low-light plants? Or am I stuck re-using my silk and plastic plants from my 20-gal? I'll be making a trip to a couple stores, including my usual, tomorrow for plants.

not sure how much light it likes, but anachris is supposed to be really easy.

I think anacharis likes more moderate-level light... but java fern and crypts are good easy, low-light plants.

I don't think either of the stores around here that carry plants have crypts, but I'll see if they got any new ferns in at my usual place, and ask about crypts.

So I should just suck it up and get some anubias? Lol. Fortunately, my usual store is having a sale on aquatic animals and supplies, including plants, so I might be able to afford one. Thanks!
