Knowning what lighting you have may help. As well as if you add any fertilizer and what dosage. If you have 1.5wpg or less could always go with the standby of Java moss and java fern. I'm personally a big fan of java moss.

I agree with irons. You can pretty much keep anything with sand. I myself use gravel, and I have both deep rooting and stem plants. I just had some laterite added for the iron, cos I hate using fertilizers. I let the fish and water changes do it for me thats why I'm not worried of overfeeding.
