Does anyone have any suggestions for plants that do well in brackish conditions?

I have only Java moss and Najas guadalipensis (http://home.clara.net/xenotoca/najas.htm) in mine, and they are both doing very well. They aren't spreading quite as quickly in the brackish tank as they do in the FW tanks, but they are spreading.

I really haven't tried anything else in that tank yet. Since algae didn't even grow in that tank, I was reluctant to purchase plants for it that might die.

Thanks for the suggestions. Now, I'm wondering what would be a suitable substrate for the plants. It's a 29g tank with sand substrate...will I need a special substrate and or light?

think planted, any substrate good for plants will be great for brackish plants. Most plants we add are already at a slight disadvantage, so giving them a boost with proper substrate is best.
