hi
im fairly new to aquascaping and fish keeping 
i recently got a 90 litre tank , the tank does not recieve much sunlight and has one normal flourescent bulb. also currently there are 8 neon tetras in the tank.
my question is what would be a good beginner plant to use and what substrate ?
 
ps. i know iv left out the wattage of the bulb , the temp of the water and probobly a few other variables,  am however looking for very general guidlines and from there on il do the research to expand my knowledge 
 
thank you for your time

Most stem plants are easy.
Anubius, Java moss, Java fern, and crypts are easy.
Amazon swords as well.
Congrats on the desire for plants.

Very fine gravel, about 2-3mm thick is the most ideal for planting substrate. You can also choose to add things like a special soil underneath the gravel to feed the plants with.
 
Head on over to http://www.tropica.com/en/home.aspx and have a little look around :)
