Plants for 2.5

I know there have been some threads like this before, but I am looking for more suggestions. I originally wanted to use HC to carpet the tank but I am having trouble finding some. If I can't find enough HC, what are some other good plants I could use? I was thinking glosso. The tank is 2.5 gallonsstandard glass, 19 watt screw-in 6500k lighting, red sea nano HOB filter, and eco-complete substrate. I am looking for some taller background plants that I can actually plant in the substrate.With the cost of the eco-complete I don't want it to go to waste with just riccia and mosses. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Am I correct in assuming that the tank is a standard rectangle? I am planning to get one of those for my WCMM (hopefully tonight.) I would love to hear some suggestions as well. Some things that I have been told are: Hemianthus Micranthemoides, petite nana (I have one of these in my 2.5g hex and it is beautiful.), R. wallichi, Hemianthus Callitrichoides, dwarf java fern, Mayaca, any of the mosses. I don't know much about many of these. Do you have pics of your current scape yet? What kind of top do you have on it?

I didn't really start the tank yet, waiting for plants. Yes it is a standard rectangular tank. Only thing I've done so far is paint the background. For the lid I am going to use egg crate temporarily probably. Eventually I will have a custom hood I think. I will try to get pics up as the tank progresses.
