High-Tech 20Gal all set up...except for the plants!

So, I need some suggestions! I have about 3.25 WPG, ADA aqua soil, and pressurized CO2. I have a piece of driftwood that I was thinking java moss...then maybe some glosso and an anubis or two in the foreground, then a amazon sword left back, and then...I'm out of ideas!

Thanks for the help guys!

I tell you what really worked best for me was ordering a plant assortment package from one of the online shops. I used aquariumplants.com (and highly, highly recommend them). But when I first got started I didn't know a crypt from a stem plant. Then since I got such a huge variety of plants and read this forum so much I started identifying the species that I had. Now I have a good idea of which specific species I want to use in future setups/aquascapes. Now I don't know if you are in the same boat I was or if you do have good knowledge of species and just want creative ideas for scaping, but I hope this helps!

I'd highly suggest adding a few fast-growing stem plants to the list. Just for starting out, at least. They help battle algae in the beginnings of a tank. Some rotala/ludwigia species are good starters.
