help me furnish my ne barb tank

Hi i recently put together a barb tank and im not sure what plants the barbs will like.
the tank gets reasonable filtration is kept at a constant tem of 26 degrees but has no overhead light.
i already have a java fern and a small half ceramic log in the tank.
please help me to refurnish this rather boring looking tank.
ps. the dimensions of the tank are somthing like 36x26x30cm

what kind of barb you will stock it with, will depend on the types of plant. tiger barbs are frisky and a group of them can do a number on your live plants. so if its tigers- i would reccommend inexpensive, hardy plants.

also the amount of lighting you will supply will affect it as well.

so tell us more about what kind of fish / lights- that will help!
