Arrow 1.5G: D-Simplicity the planted nano (Journal)

Hi, I'm new to this forum as well as keeping planted nanos. I would like to setup an iwagumish tank named D-Simplicty because of the scape and low-tech. So here are my plans:

Tank: rimless 1.5 gallon (looks like a pirate version of ADA )
Light: 15W bulb from a lamp (will upgrade soon)
Filter: a micro pump with some attached media (for biological bacteria)
Heater: no heater (will be a subtropical tank)
Substrate: small-sized gravel (almost looks like sand)
Note: I will be using those fertilizers that you place in the gravel from Azoo.
Fertilizer: will be dosing and utilizing one (don't know the brand)
Co2: co2 tablets once a week
Note: I don't want to many whistles and bells comin' out of my tank. I want it to look as sleek and sexy as possible.


Plants: HC, Java fern and some other plant to put in the back (what plant should I use?)
The HC will be placed in the front (duh) and the java and the other plant in the back corners to hide the pump.
Fish: 2-4x Gold White Cloud, 2x Oto's
or
1x Trichopisis Pumilus, 2x Oto's
(Would love to have some shrimp, but they're really hard to find here in São Paulo)

Any suggestions would help a lot.

Note: The Goldies are in there temporarily with the air pump.
But what is this plant's name (below)???
