I don't think Blyxa japonica will grow well, if at all, in a low-light, low-tech aquarium. But, the "star grass" might do ok. I only grew both of them in a high light, with CO2 tank. The star grass was a weedy pest, suggesting it could make it ok with less light, while the Blyxa grew very well, but seemed to need the high light and CO2 to do it.
