What plants should I get?

I have a 5.5 gallon that has some anubias in it. I have plain gravel but dose with Flourish, Flourish Excel, and Flourish Iron. I want to get some more plants but haven't decided on exactly what I want. I was hoping to get some advice from people with more experience with beginner plants and what looks good together. Since it's only a 5.5 gallon, space is kind of an issue.
I'm attaching a picture of the tank so you can see how it looks now.

Cryptones, Boblits, Javafern and mosses will do ok and look good together. Swords and vals are kinda big for your tank but its your tank and you be the artist. All the plants listed are good low tech plants. You also might like dwarf sags.

Welcome to the forum this is a great place with lots of good people. BTW the tank looks good!
