New nano.. how can i improve?

Would love to hear your opinions

set up this small 3.5g a month ago.. it has some crypts and christmas moss so far.

I don't like to have too many different species so I probably only want to add 1 more plant. I am debating between HC Cuba or Dwarf Hairgrass. Leaning towards DHG in the rear and left side.

What do you think? Or any other suggestions to improve it?

ps. the lighting is a bit dull at the moment.. will be upgrading the lighting. The DIY Co2 is very effective, however with dull lighting i only see minimal pearling.

HC is a little hard to carpet but its worth it. Dwarf hair grass looks like a nice lawn when you trim it but looks too messy when they grow, just my opnion though.

Not sure you're light would keep hc or dhg alive. I doubt glosso would work either.

How about mosses? mini pellia attached to rocks looks very nice.

love the tank. only thing i can think of is something tall in a back corner. also dont think that tank is big enough for those bloodfin tetras, they seemed kinda stressed. they "should" have more area to swim. other then that looks great.

something like cyperus helferi
