Planted Tank Obsessed

Okay, well I traded in the Christmas Fulu at the lfs. (I got a couple of pieces of zebra rock for my new 12 inch cube and a giant sprouted red tiger lotus bulb, or actually 2 bulbs stuck together.) Anyways, now that the fish that ate/tore up my plants are gone, I am looking to add a few more plants to this tank. I still have to be careful in what and where I plant, because the fish I have now won't mess with the plants directly, but they do like to occasionally rearrange the substrate.
The tank has 2 1bulb T8 lights, so only low light plants will survive. Any suggestions? I was thinking maybe jungle vals across the back, and maybe a few sword plants. I have 2 smaller swords that I could steal back from my 25 gallon (they were originally in here, but the fulus almost killed them, so I moved them to my other tank where they bounced back fairly well). I would love to have some kind of moss that I could attach to the driftwood in a few places that would droop down (kind of like spanish moss in a tree), but I don't know if it would be possible in this set up.
Pics below are how it looks right now. I messed up the rocks trying to catch those stupid Christmas Fulus... I ended up having to take out the wood and most of the rocks to get them. When I put the rocks back in, I left one out, and I am not as happy with it as I was. I need to rearrange again tomorrow. Also, I know I still need a background. I am trying to decide on the color. I either plan on doing black or gray.
