Plant Suggestions

Well I got a new 5.5g today in prep for the 6 Least Killifish I'm getting from someone on this forum.
So what would you suggest for plants in this tank? I have weeping moss and an anubias atm and can't think of any other "Non-stem" plants (just have gravel in here).
Also any lighting suggestions? Currently my CFL busted and I'm just using an old lizard light right now.






Any suggestions would be great!

What about some crypts and java ferns? There's infinite varieties you can get for background, midground, and foreground.

I know you only have gravel, so that makes this a little difficult, but you could always pot things to allow more variety, but java fern is always a good choice

Maybe add some floaters as well.
