What are people's favorite plants for nanos?

I'm thinking of putting together a small (1-1.5gal) to have on my desk at school, and wanted to get ideas of what kind of plants people have had luck with, or liked the most for their own nano tanks.

Here are some plants that I think would be worth considering:
Eleocharis Parvulus
Eleocharis Acicularis (Gets a bit tall for my 2.5 Gallon)
Cryptocoryne Parva
Cryptocoryne Lucens
Marsilea Minuta
Didiplis Diandra
Hemianthus Micranthemoides
Hemianthus Callitrichoides (Needs a fine substrate)
Ammania sp. 'Bonsai'
Micranthemum Umbrosum (Grows fast and would need frequent trimming)
Anubias Nana 'Petite'
And pretty much any of the mosses.

I have always had the best luck with Hemianthus Micranthemoides.
