I really like the little island. That is going to be some dense moss. I also like the idea of Riccia, but I offer another idea.

Use the Riccia as the foreground, but plant hairgrass behind it. I think it would look nice, but I'm no aquascaper.

coop...nice tank dude...simple layout and i can see how cool that thin leaf java will be when it fills.....awesome job. You don't need EI dosing...just light...though it will benefit from ferts because of the CO2/light. Looks great....fill us in when it fills in~
