Look at these packages...They will give you an idea of good, hardy plants. They are designed for beginners.

Also the site has other plants you can read about, and many good articles about how to be successful. Also look at the PlantFinder on this forum. http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/forumapc/plantfinder/
You can search for hardy plants.

I wouldn't be too concerned about the natural light. I would take advantage of it....as Diana Walstad does in her book Ecology of the Planted Aquarium. Its a myth that natural light causes algae. Think about it. What do plants in the wild grow from? Not a fluorescent bulb. I would shoot for about an 8 hr. photoperiod and adjust from there after you see how things are growing.
