Low tech, low light Anubias & Jave fern tank substrate

So I'm restarting my tank after it's been down for a long while. It's a Fluval Flora with a sheet of very dark window tint on the back instead of the foam rock stuff. I have a small canister filter and I'll probably go with lily pipes.

With the easy to grow plants I'm thinking of, I'm thinking about just doing a river rock substrate with rock somewhere in the 1.5" to 2" range. I'm debating between black and white rock. Both would look really cool with the greens of the Anubias and Java ferns.

I'm also thinking half a dozen neon tetras, a couple snails, maybe somesort of algae eater as well. And, possibly some inexpensive shrimp. I think it's the shrimp that really shape my substrate color selection.

Anyway, I'm looking for opinions, concerns about using this type of substrate or even photos!
