Fresh scape. Missing the plants. I was thinking Betta tank but the twig limits swimming room.

What kind of plants have people grown in these? I was thinking some s.repens, dwarf sag. Maybe some mosses and possibly some buce

I put S. repens, Monte Carlo, Anubias nana petite, blyxa, frogbit, duckweed, subwassertang, and a couple different kinds of moss in mine. Some plants died out because of a fert problem.

All good options! Many low light plants will do well (even without CO2) including: S. repens, MC, narrowleaf java fern, hygrophila compacta, Anubias nana petite, dwarf sag, subwassertang, mosses, ect...
Just be sure to get the light timing, and ferts dialed in. You may have to raise up the light at somepoint (unless you add CO2), just my experience.
