Suggestions on new plants?

This is my first tank, planted or not. It's a 20H, with 65w of light, a Hagen Natural CO2 system, mostly flourite covered with regular black gravel, and an Aquaclear 50 filter. At the moment I am battling an algae infestation. I just started doing dry fertilizers today, which will hopefully help, but I think I also need/want more plants.

So what would you suggest? Do I need anything else in the background? Midground? What would you suggest for the foreground that won't get too big?

I'm open to any and all suggestions (or criticisms...I don't mind those either!!).

Thanks!

i have personaly never been a fan of water sprite so i would try to anchor some sort of moss (flame, java, tiawan) on that sweet wood you have there.

also maybe a little e.tenellus or micro swor in the for-ground in the front left.

all in all it looks great though! good job!
