Help planning my tank!

Hey, i have almost givin up on frshwater and would like some help planning what may be my last if things dont go in the right direction. The tank will be a 10 gallon AGA. The light will be a 20inch coralife aqualight with 32 watts on it. All i need to get is a tank, heater and substrate. The substrate will be some form of sand that is 1mm to 2mm in grain size. The tank will have 1 german blue ram and some tetras or cory cats.

What would be some good plants? I have java moss, water sprite, elodea and bacopa. all of this is being stored ina 2.5 aga with a small florescent bulb over it.

please feel free to throw in any suggestions!

Hydro. Polysperma, java fern, Ludwigia repens, Anubias. You want to start out with fast growing plants. This will help fend of the intial attack of algae. Are you going to use CO2 in this tank?
