Crypt Wendtii and Anubias Nana (and/or nana petite)

Two very common and popular plants for a reason. Easy to grow and require minimal light/tech. And IMO they are a couple of my favorite plants.

Currently running my first AquaClear. It is an AC20 on a nano tank. I will never use any other HOB filters. Works extremely well, quite, and extremely low maintenance.
