Need suggestions for Plants in a shrimp nano tank

This is the first shrimp tank i am setting up, so not familiar much what type of plants will be best to put in it.

I have a Fluval Chi 5 gallon tank which i removed the stock filter and put in a Fluval nano filter instead with added foam on the inlet.

I put a Fluval Nano Aqualife LED light on it now.
Using Fluval Stratum substrate.

I have the tank all setup with water, just need to add plants and shrimp.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I am trying to avoid adding a c02 setup to this tank and make it as maintenance free as possible.

Id suggest low light slow growers if you want little maintenance. How about crypts, anubias, fern or mosses?

Downoi, water fern, and crypts all tissue cultured.
All clean and garbage free.

Just a thought!

Growing is not that difficult.
