Plants for sand tank

I have a 10 gallon with a very fine sand substrate, are there any plants that would do well in sand, or perhaps any floating plants?

and I would prefer plants that are low maintenance if that makes a difference

You can go for crypts. Low light/tech. Just add ferts per week.

what lighting do you have? a bulb rated around 6500k would work best for plants

crypts would be good. anubias, java moss and java fern can be grown attached to a rock or wood and also have low lighting requirements

i have sand and grow pygmy chain sword, amazon pennywort and hygrophilla difformis

I've heard hairgrass works well in sandy substrates.

Meh, not high light... Angel doesn't use "High light" and her hairgrass does well.
