What are some possible plants that could survive in brackish water? And eventually the SG would be slowly raised over the years to turn into a full marine tank, as the species I want in the tank require it. Thoughts?

If you intend to eventually go to a full salt water environment you migh as well just do it. I will give a link to brackish water plants but 98% wil die in full salt water.

BTW: Their shipping is too high and I was giving this for the list of plants. But check what the shipping would be if the order is over $50 if that is what you had in mind.

There's lots of plants that will grow in brackish up to 1.009 such as anubias, java ferns, hygros, vals, bacopa, ludwigia just to name a few, You just need to slowly acclimate them, Now none of these will survive full marine salt levels, If you want to grow plants and macro algeas in a marine setup then look into dragons breath, graciliaria , grape Calurpa and Calurpa prolifera are my favorites
