Spec 3 plant help! (New version)

Just finished setting up this tank in my office and need suggestions on what to plant in the foreground. I just want to do excel and and minimal ferts if necessary. I currently have 4 Chili rasboras and shrimp. Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Lots of options here. I like the idea of more Buce. Taller, longer leaved buce to the back and smaller rounder leaf buce to the front. Try for different shades so it won't be monochromatic. Also may want to look into gluing some mesh over the filter intake with such small inhabitants. Cool nano.

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

I like the idea of more buce.

If you want to go another route - DHG belem and pearlweed in the left corner would probably be fine with excel and ferts.
