Lightbulb Suggestions needed - Types and placement

I need your input! I have reworked my 55g and now need suggestions for specific plant types and where best to place them.

About the tank:
55g Freshwater
Safe T Sorb Substrate (love the look )
pH - holding at 7.8 (based on the api master test kit)
water temp - 79 F
Rena XP3 Canister Filter
Aqueon 55 HOB Filter
Aquatic Life Dual T5HO 1x54watt 6500k + 1x54watt Roseate

Fish:
6 - Zebra Danios
5 - Serpae Tetras
5 - Black Skirt Tetras
5 - Red Eye Tetras
6 -8 -Corydoras (adding soon)

Here is a pic of the tank I took just today. There was one cluster of crypts in the old tank, Cryptocoryne wendtii ''green'' I think. I split it into the 6 plants you see in the pic. I also have one small Anubias "nana" I think on a rock at the right. I added some API Root Tabs(1/2 tab per plant) near each crypt.
