Looks good! If you can, I would float the wood in some water for a month before attempting to start the tank. The wood will probably float loose and make a mess. Floating it will let it absorb water, and the likely hood of it coming loose will drop.

Marsilea quadrifolia works great in low light, it gets a single lobe leaf and spreads well. It would look pretty nice filling in the right front of the tank near the rock. behind that, a small sword or crypt would look good along the right side. A taller sword in the far back right corner might look nice as well as Java fern attached to the rock, or even leaving it uncovered would look nice. Some moss along one of the branches could make a nice focal point. The wood is going to look great when it is waterlogged, the color should be good.

See my PM as well
