Welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping forum.

There are many aquarium plants, some may be more suitable than others for your particular aquarium. Light is the most important factor--some are low light, some moderate, and some require brighter light. And then nutrients have to balance the light.

We have many plants (and fish) in our profiles, second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page. If you could detail your light (type, watts, Kelvin) we would be better able to suggest appropriate plants.

Some fish stores unfortunately sell terrestrial plants as aquarium plants, so one has to know what they are getting.

Duration cannot make up for intensity, both have to be balanced with nutrients. If you could detail your light we should be able to suggest some suitable plant species. Type of light, watts, kelvin, and tank length.
