I have a 10 gallon tank I'm planning to redo in the future. What are some beginner plants that I can add?

Dwarf sag, they're practically unkillable, do well in all lighting conditions, spread like weed, no need for ferts or co2. I've had great success with this plant.

This is the growth after 3 months in the shrimp tank with DIY co2 and sporadic fertilizing, the substrate is sand.

And here it is in my 55 ultra low tech "barely turn on the light" tank

Can't go wrong with java moss, java fern, anubias petite and ludwigia repens for a dash of color

I've got some dwarf sag too, and I kind of like it overgrown and not neatly trimmed! My microsword is not really growing much though. Thinking of removing it and replacing it with more dwarf sag. 20190521_182654.jpg

Those dwarf sag are tall! O.O

I've also got some dwarf sag in my aquarium and so far they're doing good. I've seen some new growth on a majority of my sag plant, however, I haven't seen any runners yet, mainly because they have been getting uprooted (prime suspects would be my corydoras) and that they're still settling in.
