1g nano jug

So I got a new idea for a tank and while the logistics and maintenance of doing upkeep on this tank will be awful I still think it will be a neat idea.

For lighting I will be using a Cree cool white LED w/ a 90 degree lens mounted in the cap.

I will be using an air stone for circulation in the tank

i will also most likely be using EI dosing and excel since this will be a medium - high light tank.

I was thinking of keeping some Red cherry shrimp and maybe a few nerite snails as the stock in the tank

Keeping in mind that there will be a 1" opening to work with what are some good options as far as plants for a tank such as this? I was thinking a few options might be some myrio filligree and Star repens to start but would like some other suggestions.
