Get Java ferns (there are several varieties having different leaf shapes) and Anubias (again several varieties having different leaf sizes) both should not be planted in substrate but can and should be attached to stones and/or wood and will do perfectly well in your condition.

Amazon sword needs either rich substrate or sand with root fertiliser tablets - and will not do well in gravel.

Your other option is to use pots with plant substrate and a gravel cover. You could grow Cryptocoryne in them. Some crypt varieties have brown to redish-brown leaves and will bring color to your tank. Crypts will do well in your light condition.
