Wow growth has been good! With regular trimming the tank will surely look great!
I like that elatine carpet with it's pointy leaves, it fits the stargrass (or stargrass-like plant) perfectly IMHO.
If I were you, I wouldn't put danios, I'd look for some nano fish like microrasbora kubotai or boraras sp, it would make the tank look huge. Endlers would also look great.

I like elatine carpet with its sharp leaves, it is consistent with Vista Glass (or Vista Grass-type plant) fully respect.
If I were you, I would not put danios, I will find some fish, such as nano-or boraras microrasbora kubotai algae, it will make the tank look great. Endlers are nice.
