Floating plant's mentioned above, along with crypt's and anubia, will grow under bout any lighting.(would try several of these plant's first)
Would stay away from livebearer's with the relatively soft water you have.These fish need hard alkaline water, and will do poorly over the long haul in soft water condition's.
They also re-produce quickly which would leave you scrambling for more tank's or finding suitable homes for the hundred's of fry.
