Low tech 5G WIP

I finally decided to scape my betta 5 gallon tank.

this is obviously a WIP, but any feedback and ideas are welcome!

: In background : Amazon Swords (will change for some Sag or valls when I find a decent bunch)

On the driftwood :
Java fern, Java Moss and a Tiny anubias

added a small amazon sword after to hide the rooting of the ferns.
I want to add a moss carpet eventually as well.
I also want to add floating plants (duckweed ?)

No ferts, no co2, just a homedepot daylight bulb and Fluval Plant stratum with sand under.

Inhabitant :
Halfmoon betta
soon i'll test a couple of Amano shrimps to help clean the tank/plants. or maybe a snail
