How big is the tank? What's the tank temp?  Are you looking for aquatic
plants, or plants for the terrarium side?  How much light does the tank have?

On the aquatic side, Hygro would be good.  As long as you aren't trying to
limit it to North american plants, then you might want some Amazon Frogbit,
maybe some Java fern and Java moss.   I'm not sure which plants will do good
in a terrarium side, maybe some other list members can help here...

I can send you some of all the ones I mentioned.  For free of course.  It's
for a good cause!
