suggestions for nano background plants

I need some suggestions for good low tech background plants to fill the back wall of a Fluval Spec V. Current plants are java moss, a ton of anubias nana petite, and subwassertang. I plan on adding some dwarf hair grass and Staurogyne Repens this week.
My light is a 16-inch Finnex FugeRay PLanted+ that's typically on 6 hours per day. I'm not using co2 or Excel nor do I desire to. Currently, there is 2 nerites 1 Amano and a rabbit snail and about 30 neocardinia shrimps. The fertilizer I'm using is Niloc G Thrive and I dose 1ml 1 time per week. I'm sure if it's enough fertilizer either.

You're DEFINITELY going to want to up your fertilzer regimen. I've got a spec v of my own, and I'm dosing dry ferts every other day! I'd actually suggest the dry ferts from NilocG, since theyre more cost effective and easier to titrate to meet your specific needs.

You could do dwarf rotala if you're looking for something planted. Hornwart can also work if you trap it to the bottom of the glass in the back with something like a suction cup and let it semi free float.

They both have very fine leaves which make for nice scale in a nano tank
