Question Need some help

with some scaping ideas along with plant suggestions.
Here is a pic of my new tank

The tank is Im thinking is about 3/4 gallon . It will have a 28 cfl on it using a desktop light. No filtration will be used on this tank . I doubt it will have a fish in it unless I get a betta to put in it. I can do diy co2. Im basically wanting your thoughts on this tanks scaping and what plants would be suitable.

Somthing that small might look cute with just a piece of drift wood in the center with either an intresting moss, or Anubias nana 'petite'.
After that, maybe some dwarf sag in the background for a grassy look?

you could go alot of diffrent ways, depending on what kind of look you're intrested in.

Im open to all ideas and suggestions. I would like to have a full scape as much as I can get in there without it looking to jungle like .

Nice layer of substrate, maybe some dwarf hair grass like in the other tank.

Some other nice plants would be glosso for a carpeting plant. You can try HC if you'd like. In the back, a few nice short stems like L. sessiflora may be nice. It's up to your tastes. The rock is a bit too big in the link you posted. I would go with all plants in a tank that small unless you can find some tiny twigs that may add to the hardscape, or a very tiny rock with lots of character, but those are far and few in between IME.

I'd throw in some RCS. They'll do fine in a tank like that with weekly WCs. Some red-on-green contrast would help the tank too.
