Question Plant recs for 15 gal w/ celestial pearl danios and dwarf blue panda guppies?

Hi all, I have a 15 gallon Fluval Flex set up (I don't know if this technically qualifies as a nano tank but that's what I consider it). I have 6 celestial pearl danios and 4 dwarf blue panda guppies coming next week. The danios are tank raised rather than farmed so they are probably going to be a bit more sociable because of that, but I want to heavily plant the tank too just to ensure they feel safe (there are two pieces of driftwood for extra cover in addition to the plants listed below, I also have some round ceramic "caves" I could add).

Here's what I have so far:
- 1 large bolbitis heudelotii
- 1 cup of pellia moss
- 1 cup of java moss
- 1 quart of guppy grass
- Frogbit
- 6 anubias nana plants
- 2 stems of moneywort
- 3 stems of red ludwigia
- 3 stems of green camboba

I started off with hardy, low-light plants as I have the stock LED lamp in the tank but I do have a CO2 system in the works (should be finished setting up tonight). Is there anything else you would recommend I add plant-wise to round out this tank? I do feel like I could maybe use some more short foreground plants.
