Fluval Spec V plant ideas

Hi, first off in new to the forum, but have seen what great advice you guys give. My question revolves around the fluval spec V (new version). My plan is to have a sloped scape with carpeting plants in the front half, with taller ones surrounding driftwood and stones towards the back. As far as the carpeting plant, I like the look of dwarf hair grass. Let me know any ideas you have for a better carpet plant, and any easy, taller plants for the other half. If it helps in giving advice, I’ve got flourite dark substrate, and I plan to stock a betta, and some cherry shrimp.

Have you given this spec V thread a look? may get some ideas for plants:

Java fern is a common plant used in these tanks (for taller section-attach to driftwood).
If you want to keep shrimp I'd strongly suggest a big dense blob of some sort of moss for them to hide in-its also a great surface to grow the microscopic food they forage constantly. Have tank fully with plants set up and cycled for a few months before adding shrimp.
Side note: bettas are predators, don't get mad if it has a lobster buffet (eats your cherry shrimp). Be careful about your driftwood and stone setup-bettas can get wedge under structures/in holes in driftwood trying to chase after shrimp.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.
