There are a number of plants that do great in low lighting, but I think you already mentioned a few you don't like. They are:
Cryptocoryn (just about any crypt)
Java fern
Java moss
Hygrophilia Polysperma (seems to grow fast under any lighting)
I'm sure there are more, but those are what jump out at me right off the bat, since I have all of them. I'm not sure about anacharis, since I have kept that under medium lighting. It might not do well under low lighting, much like Hornwort. That stuff grows like mad under high light, but under low light it just wastes away.

Two 1 GA desktops, a 5 gallon, a 2.5 gallon, a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon, a 25 gallon, and two 75 gallon tanks, all planted.
I am an expert on algae, so ask me if you have questions. I know how to grow it, just not how to get rid of it.
