I killed all of the micro sword, the ground cover you see there is dwarf hairgrass.
I don't think I could do what you said because my wood touches the glass. The 4" of blank space I explained a couple posts back was wood area. There is a little bit of space but the majority is shaded by the wood which goes on an angle from front middle to back right in the tank's above 'blueprint'. I'll try to get some pictures of the side of the tank soon so the actual depth of the tank is shown and it would be easier to see from and angle of what plants I could add and what plants I couldn't.
