Newbie here looking for some advice and guidance

I’m planning to put together a 10 gallon tank. My main objective is to get a good, lush, green carpet going and few different, taller background plants (looking for some suggestions). I LOVE dwarf hair grass carpets (when they’re full) but I’m not sure I’ll be able to get a good carpet of DHG with my setup. I’m thinking Monte Carlo might be a better option.

Here’s my equipment so far...

10 gallon tank
Fluval plant and shrimp stratum
NICREW classicLED plus
Standard heater and filter

I’m probably going to add CO2 at some point in the future.

I decided to get the “plus” version of the light. Not sure if it’s gonna be too bright though. Maybe I shouldn’t have got the “plus” version?
It’s a full spectrum, 850 lm, 15 w, 6500k light.

I’m planning on keeping a Betta and some cherry shrimp in there too.

Opinions and suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
