What are some nice, challenging aquatic plants to try and grow in my aquarium?

I have a light with dual 7000K LEDs and 40 650 nm infrared lights.
10 gallon aquarium with Fluval Aquaclear 30. 80-81 degrees. Ph 6.6-6.7. Seachem fluorite substrate. CO2 injections once - twice a week but could be made daily depending on what is required. Weekly fertilization by flourish. Seachem root tabs in tank.

"CO2 injections once or twice a week"? :confused:

Moderate to high light plants (which are also the more challenging) require consistent levels of CO2 throughout the day. They also require a more balanced fertilization regimen than just Flourish Comprehensive and root tabs.

Your temps are also on the high side for many plants.

You might start off with some Hygrophila species. They're fairly fast growing and therefore have a high nutrient demand and can help you learn what to look for and how to address nutrient deficiencies. Most can also handle those higher temps.
