How does this scaping plan look?

Tank specs:
110 gal ( 24"x24"x22" )
Plain gravel
Lighting T-5 2x54w( 1 Giesemann Miday 6000K & 1 Giesemann Aquaflora )
2 Aquaclear 110's HOB filters
2 Stealth 250w heaters
I only plan on using Flourish Excell and root tab's

Proposed layout of plants:

I stayed away from Vals due to the Excell dosing and stayed away from Cryps because of their melting properties and the cold weather these plants will be shipped in. Knowing this, anything you would change or Add?

Looks good. I'm not sure if you'll be able to see the Giant Hairgrass behind the driftwood or not but other than that, it looks like a solid start

The giant hairgrass would be just behind the wood, on the right side, about 2-3" in. Bottom half of GHG wouldn't be visible, but middle to the top would be. I couldnt figure a way to place the "type" in the spot I was thinking.

Would what I have be a good starting point, as for how many plants I'm planting? I read to start with a bunch, to help stop algae.
