Clay pot tanks, looking for some ideas

Hey all,

My wife talked me into keeping a couple extra cute feeder comets. I gave in, as it did allow me to set up another tank.. something that has been off the table for some time now. I have them in a 20 gallon until we move in a couple months and can get them a bigger tank. I want to keep it simple so I'm going with a bare bottom and want to focus on crypts as they seem to be pretty unappetizing to goldies. I'm also planning on keeping a similar design in their larger tank when I upgrade.

So, I was hoping to get some suggestions on plants and design. I was thinking a couple large Wendtii bronze in the back as the centerpiece but other than that I'm not too familiar with crypt species and how they look mature.

Thanks for the help! I'd also love to see some others designs, been having trouble finding examples...

Here's a quick mock up of what I was imagining design wise:
