I got some Staurogyne on SnS, so that is one plant I will be trying. And, I'm looking for vallisneria nano for one corner. Plus, I have lots of needleleaf Java Fern for the other corner, with a pile of bogwood for it to grow on. As fill in plants, possibly temporary, I have an assortment of stem plants. Finally, my little 8 gallon nano cube has too much growth of crypts in it, so some or all of them will be in the midground areas.
I'm still debating about fish. A lot depends on what I find at the LFS when I go shopping for them, but I want 2-3" long fish this time instead of my usual 1-2" fish. I figure I can put about 12-14 in the tank without overdoing it.
