Plants for windowsill Bowl

We get a ton of light in my front window. I was thinking of making a windowsill betta bowl. What are good plants to put in there?

I was thinking
Sunset Hygrophila
Water Sprite
Java Fern

Thanks for the Help

A Good Idea

I grow emersed water sprite in my windowsill, so that choice would probably work just fine. The java fern would work too. I don't have any experience with the sunset hygro though.

Just watch for massive swings in temp from day to night. I had tried something similar to this a while back and could never get it going. Summer it would be hot to the touch from the sun and never made it to see winter.
