Simple Plants

I'm getting some grass pickerel and I want to replace my plastics with a simple plant. The tank is a 125g with 2 36" aquaglo bulbs. I know that this is pretty low light, but I'm not looking for a nice pretty tank. I want to achieve a weeded over lake look. I thought I could do this with anarchis, but I'm not sure.

That is very low light. You might try some Bolbitis, or Anubias, or maybe some of the Cryptocornes. Some of the Java Ferns and mosses attached to driftwood look alright. If you were to try some of the submerged plants, I don't thing you would want any floaters that would block what light that you have.
