Here's what I have so far, java moss, java fern, anubias. Ordered more java moss to make a moss wall to cover the back ground. Looking to hide the filter with long plants. Just feel like I'm missing something.

some of the mini varieties of bucephalandra would look nice - mini coin, catherinae red mini, etc.

As for tallish plants to hid the filter, you could dwarf sagittaria, it might get to ~ 6-8 inches (but probably smaller). Maybe hygrophila difformis.

I don't think I have the light for bucephalandra or dwaf sagittaria but I'll try the hygrophila difformis.

if you've got enough light for anubias, you've got enough for buce.

dwarf sag also doesn't need a lot of light, and it tends to grow a bit leggier in lower light situations. so, that would help you out in trying to grow it tall to hide the filter.
