Immediate thoughts: Italian Vals, Jungle Val, Crypt Retrospiralis, Crypt Spiralis, Quillwort, Amazon Swords, Bacopa Carolina (stem), Brazillian Pennywort (stem), Anacharis (stem), maybe Ludwigia repens(depends on light, and it would be green). Dwarf onion plant would likely work. There are plenty more.
How tall is your tank, how many gallons, and what light do you have on it? These would be good choices I think in a standard sized 20, and 29-75 gallon; If you have a 10 gallon or 20 long, many of these would likely be too big or tall. Likewise, if you have a really tall tank, as seem to be popular atm, I am not sure if they would get enough light or reach the top to hide your eggcrate.
30" tall,, they do not need to be able to reach the top of the tank, although i wouldnt mind that.
so basically i need something that doesnt need a ton of light and is easy to take care of.. a plus
would be one that does not need to be planted in soil such as java fern.
Often not thought of as a 'low light' plant, but I had great success with wisteria (Hygro Difformis) in a lowish light tank - 'low light' is a very qualitative term; I was running about 25 PAR with Excel only, no CO2 . . .
Grew really well and got very bushy, excellent for hiding things.
