5g rimless: Cliff Hanger

So I decided it was time for a 2nd planted tank. I went and bought a half rimless (has brackets on the bottom) 5 gallon from a lfs and got started. I haven't gotten the equipment all planned out yet, but I'm going to grow the plants emersed for awhile anyways.






I'm planning on planting HC on the back right corner under the tree as soon as I get my hands on some. Also, I'm going to put some flame moss on the top of each branch so it looks like a real tree. I planted some UG in the foreground and hopefully it will spread in time. Any thoughts and comments would be nice, this is just a rough preliminary scape.

Oh yeah and can someone tell me if i planted the UG correctly? The roots were quite difficult to deal with. It's my first time growing it, and I would really like to grow it correctly

Got some HC from Seth today. Thanks btw, the HC is beautiful and the roots were a lot more defined that the HC I have bought in the past. Planted most of it; here's how it looks.
