    Elodea.
    A pest over here in Australia.

    Yes, all plants love a bit of liquid fertiliser, you should be able to buy liquid fertiliser for aquarium plants at a good aquarium shop.

    DO NOT use normal garden fertilisers!!!!
    Currently: Spotted Blue-eyes, two species of Australian shrimp, Ornate Rainbowfish, Guppies, Corydoras, goldfish.

    I agree with the above posters. It sounds as you want a low light selection, no CO2.

    This site gives a good selection for plants with different light requirements and may help with your selection.

    What size tank? how much light? What kind of light? Those things are important things to know in order to advise you. If you just have incandescent bulbs then there's not much you are going to get to grow.
