My first Planted Tank - Iwagumi Attempt
Awesome! The stones I gave you are Yamaya (inert) from AquaForest Aquariums in SF.
One thing you didn't mention is that you are going to have a 5lb co2 system running. That allows you to play around a bit more with carpets.
We could get plants today at AFA, but you need to have at least the bottom pad ready and we need to secure and level that stand before filling up the tank.
A heavily planted shrimp tank is possible!
