Java ferns ( you can get some very interesting variants ) moss and anubias. Overplant the tank. Buy more plants than you think you need. This will provide for a healthy tank from the onset and help prevent algae going forward.
A single anubias nana with 9 leaves is enough if you have a half gallon tank or so.
I know right! I definitely will do that, just limited on funds at the moment so got what I could for the time being after tank expenses and all. Although I am having trouble finding quality plants from any source right now. Drove 2 hours round trip to a location I thought would be beneficial but they did not have what I was after.
