Stocking/Planting/Laying out A 130 Litre Aquarium

After I finish my GCSE's/Exams I am going to buy a Aqua One Aqua Nano 130 for my bedroom, which is 130 litres and the measurements are W80xD40xH40cm, First of all the substrate for this tank is going to be Tropica Plant Substrate, Tropica is Well know bristish brand for aquarium plants, This will be capped with Play sand, Then on the right side of the tank there will be a couple of large rocks which will have cryptocoryne beckettii planted around the base of them, here will also be a coconut cave near the rocks which will also be surrounded by cryptocoryne beckettii, Behind the large rocks I might plant a echinodorus speices or hygrophila polysperma. On the left there will be a medium sized pieces of wood which will be angled to the right, pointing up. Around the base of this there will be also cryptocoryne beckettii, Behind the wood I will plant Straight val or Echindorus spieces. I may include a carpet of either dwarf hairgrass or Stuargyne repens. As for the stock I want to put in, 8 Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish, 15-20 Cardinal tetras, A keyhole cichlid(from my current tank which is being torn down), A pair of super red bristlenose plecos after it's been set up for a few months I may add a pair of German blue rams or Fire/Flame Red Apistogramma Agasizzii, So what are your Suggestions/Tips on this Layout/Stocking?
