easiest plant to grow

I have a fluval spec III at my office. I had a betta in it, and it died so im starting over. Im going to do a planted tank this time. I plan of putting in 2 endlers and a snail. Anyways the light is not that strong and the condition of the water are not the best. So what are some of the easiest plants to keep alive, that will look decent? Thanks

anubias nana, hands down IME. i have a bunch in a big tank with a ton of bioload, and these things have flourished from TINY riozomes.

Java fern, it thrives in a 2.5 gallon >1 LED WPG tank with very infrequent water changes.

If it's legal in your state, I've heard wondrous things about Hydrophila polysperma...

Duckweed, it will form a layer on the top of the tank, and the roots will look like a reverse carpet on the top of the tank...that is, if the endlers and snails don't eat it first.

Hornwort can make wonderful floating tangles that look quite decent if cared for right, or you can plant it

Elodea is like the cold water version of hornwort, both thrive under pretty much any condition.
