Need help with plant choice fluval edge 5 gal

Happy day everyone! I’m setting up a high tech, high light Fluval edge 5 gallon. I’m going for an iwagami style. I’m using a fluval Aura light (186 PAR at 6 inches per the manufacturer), pressurized co2, and a sunsun 603b canister. I’m using a Lilly glass spin outflow to keep current down. Samurai soil is the main substrate with a portion of white/tan sand for contrast. I will dose Niloc G powder EI fertilizer. I will stock with either a shoal of Celsetrial Pearl Danios or Scarlett Badis along with some RCS and a snail. I’ve selected several plants as well. I’m hoping for some insight and some comment/critique of my plant and stocking choices. I’ve done a lot of research and I think some of my plants may not work well together on paper (some need high iron and some don’t, etc.) can you let me know if I’m asking for problems and if so what are the suggestions for improvement. I really appreciate any input this group can give.

Plant choices in the pictures. Ludwigia and Rotala for background, sag and Pogostemon for mid and HC as carpet/foreground.

My semi finalist plants are cryptocoryne wenditti red, limnophila aromatica, and Hygrophila pinnatifida (I know it’s probably too big but I really love this plant)
