Question Finnex planted 24/7 & plants?

I have an empty 20g long, Finnex planted 24/7 light and an aquaclear 30 filter. Wondering which plants would do well in this tank with this light. Other than running the filter on my other 20g tall to get a jump start on my cycle, I have done nothing with this tank, yet. Any carpeting plants that could work without co2? Trying to stay low tech for now? Any and all suggestions appreciated.

Dwarf Sag will grow well and carpet without CO2,at least it has for me.Hygro polysperma grows nicely as well.Hygro cormbosa "kompact" grows very nice under the planted plus lights too.Also,you can put strands of hornwort under rocks to quickly fill in until the other plants get going."Anacharis" IE: Elodea,grows well too,and very quickly.You can also grow Bacopa caroliniana.Thses will probably grow the fastest in a low tech setting.
You can also try java ferns,anubias nana,and some of the other anubias,thought hey wan't grow as fast.

Those are a few of the practically foolproof plants that have grown very well for me,I'm sure others have some too.

MTS? no,I just need one more tank...

Thanks! I have a bunch of anubias nana and petite that I can pull from my other tanks. I also have some narrow Java Fern. Those have all done well with stock lighting. I got this new light for Christmas and thought about trying something new. I live on the back side of nowhere, even a Petsmart is a 2 hour drive. I have to order everything so I'm trying to do my research in advance.
