Cool Low light recommendation for Betta tank

I have a small 2 gallon glass tank for a betta. Whats a good low-light plant for this tank that the betta would enjoy as well? Would natural light be an option?

But if you do use natural light, beware of algae.

Or an Oto. I have one in my naturally lit nano and he is always feeding. Between the algae and diatoms, food is endless. Still give him some veggies though, just in case.
