Choosing plants for my tank

Hi, all!

I want to start using live plants in my tanks because I think that they'd look a lot better than the fake ones that I have in there now. I know that different plants needs different lighting, so I was curious as to which plants would be good for my tank.

I have a 3.5 gallon tank with LED lighting (it has red, green, blue and regular lights.) I usually keep the lights on the setting with all four of them on during the day for about 12-13 hours and I have gravel substrate. I have a Hawkeye Aquarium 180, if that helps (

I was thinking of getting some Anubias for sure, maybe some Java Fern and I was gonna get a Moss ball. Any help/ideas?

P.S: What about trimming the plants? I've been doing mild research, but I haven't learned a thing about it :(

Thank you for any help!

Just a quick interjection, whenever i have to prune the dead leaves off my swords, i just do it with my fingernails. A quick pinch and the leaf comes right off. :3
