What would grow well in a stock Fluval Ebi?

Just what the title asks. What would grow well in a stock fluval ebi? No extras really. I'm doing fluval shrimp stratum, Seachem Flourish (might do excel), and the stock light it came with. I actually have two of the stock lights, so I could add it for higher light.

You can grow anything really, buy maybe a little paintball diy co2 wouldn't hurt.

This is my first planted tank, and I'm not very experienced with aquariums at all, so I'm a little leery of co2.

In my ebi, dwarf riccia, rotala, and all the moss grow really well without co2. You can also try glossostigma as a carpet plant but you have to use all of your spare light though. I recommend fissidens fontanus and peacockmoss as they are two of the most baeutiful moss but suffer from slow growth. I bought 3 mat of 8 by 8 cm of peacock pad from ebay and it cover the front of the tank nicely, an it only cost 10 bucks shipped. Depend on where you live to since it is from oversea.

I mainly have java moss and wisteria in mine. Common crypts grow really well too, I just had to redo my tank because the crypt took it over, and I run mine as stock. I am debating about doing some diy co2 on it just to try it out, but haven't gone that far.
