It'd be easier to recommend plants if we had some idea of what your experiment was going to test. Also, what lighting will you be using? Yes, a desk lamp-but what type of bulb and will the tank recieve supplemental sunlight?

If you're using a high lumen bulb in the lamp and/or the tank is exposed to indirect sunlight during the day--you may be much better off with faster growing stems so you get enough growth (even if less than optimal growth patterns under the lower light conditions) to obtain measurable changes in the plants.
