I wont be injecting Co2 but I am going to keep the tank with around 6-8 smallish plants. Will it be ok for me to keep them without the use of Co2 injection? I'm not looking for prize winning plants, I'll even be happy if they don't grow much from when i buy them, but will not injecting Co2 be hazardous for the plants health?

There are plenty of plants that do well without Co2- and plenty more that will survive, but you'll see slower growth, not really a problem in a small tank. You can go for the standards like java fern, hornwort and java moss. I've had lots of luck with Cryptocoryne wendtii, and I really like my floating water lettuce as well.

I want to keep it nice and simple in my first tank, so I can study the species and see how well they thrive or not, this way I can have some first hand experience when i end up getting my 100 gallon tank.

Possibly just a few java fern, maybe a crypt or 2, and maybe an ozelot.
