good aquatic plants for riparium

I am building a riparium. The substrated is pool filter sand and I have ordered some root tabs to use in it. I would like to have a few low-light, hardy aquatic plants--what would you guys suggest? Would java fern do ok rooted in the pool filter sand? Or some swords? Just to be clear I'm asking for suggestions for plants that will be submersed, not for plants in the hangers.

Crypts would be good. You can do Java fern or Anubias but make sure the rhizome is up out of the substrate.

+1^^^ Swords would be good too. I like the look of crypts and dwarf sag the best.
