What plants would grow well in a frog pong that is in mostly shade?

We are thinking of putting a frog pond in our tiny backyard which has a 70% shade cloth roof over it. Are there any suitable plants to help keep the water oxygenated? We wish to put small native fish in our pond - either Pacific blue eyes or rainbow fish have been recommended as frog friendly. Our pond will be about 30cm deep and 1 and a half metres wide. We live in Bundaberg.

Thanking you for your help......

Answer: Dear Tracey,

I would contact your local nursery, who at this time of year should have a good range of aquatic plants available for sale. You might also like to gather some information from the shop where you are going to buy your fish. You will find that they too, stock aquatic plants and would be able to advice on suitable plants to oxygenated the water.

I am sure the frogs will enjoy their new home that you are creating for them.
