New Build, need help

So I'm looking to get back into the hobby. I'm going to start off fairly simple. I still have an AC20 filter, a heater, a good sized piece of mopani wood, and a good looking seiryu stone left over from my old tank.

I'm going to pick up a 10 gallon and pop 2 13W CFL bulbs in the hood. I was thinking of using something like Floramax black/black sand or eco-complete. Not sure.

I was thinking of possibly doing a dwarf hair grass carpet, but I can't think of a good background plant. I might add a few anubias to the wood. Also, maybe some moss somewhere?

The only inhabitants will probably be a betta and a snail for clean up.

Comments? Suggestions? Anything?
