Plant selection advice

I am in the process of setting up a spec V Iwagumi tank and will be using HC as the primary carpet plant. I am stuck on what plant to use as a second plant for tight spaces between some of the stones. I am thinking of something medium height (hair grass or microsword) but really am a bit overwhelmed by the options. Thoughts on what might look good?

Hi. Since the SpecV isn't super tall, I think microswords (better if roots are down in substrate) would work. Also, Crypt Parva is good (root feeder) but it likes to spread - maybe ok, maybe not for your scape. It's not traditional Iwagumi, possibly, since the leaves arent straight thin, but it is one of my favorites. I'm only suggesting easy plants, of course, and low maint. That's more my style. If you want to do some higher lighting and CO2, my advice is meaningless.
