IME java ferns/moss as well as anubias and even crypts will all do fine with that much light. I don't think the emperor should be a problem if you keep the water level up.these plant really don't need a lot of high tech maintenance and there are many varieties to choose from. Smile

If you get some more light...all of the above Smile personally I really like high tech tanks, but theres something that I like even more about achieving a nice scape with plants that arent uber sensitive. java moss is good ground cover, java ferns and anubias will can themselves to rocks and wood if you so choose, but can also be on the substrate as long as you only put the roots under your gravel and keep the rhizome out. crypts are planted in the substrate and benefit from some sort of root tabs if you choose but won't die if they don't have it. if you have a look through the gallery you will see some of these plants and theyve got more anecdotes and advice Smile
