Swords (Echinodorus sp.) are always good. Most of them do well in low tec. Just avoid the biggest ones. They also provide a good surface for the angels to lay their eggs on. Other low light plants include, e.g. Crypts (Cryptocoryne sp.), Anubias sp., Java Ferns (Microsorium pteropus), Bolbitis sp., and mosses to name a few.

Also, try searching the forum with keywords like low light plants, or similar.
