10 Gallon plant suggestions for scape.

JLAquatics

Greetings all. I would love opinions and suggestions on a tank I will be scaping soon. It will be a 10 gallon aquarium with soil base and a sand cap. It will consist of Manzanita Driftwood and Lava Rocks hardscape wise. I have created a rough sketch for the design with what I want to go for hardscape wise. What I would like to ask you guys is what plants do you recommend I use in a setup created like this. The one thing I will add for sure is a Dwarf Lily in the back corner that tapers across the top of the tank for shade (and the Betta). I want the one end to be heavily planted with the plants slowly tapering off towards the right end. I will use some plants such as Bolbitis and Anubias Nana Petite in the rockwork, but I would love suggestions for the other areas of this design with rooted plants that do well in a soil base. Everyone's input is much appreciated!

PS: Tank will be low tech dosed with an all in one fert and liquid carbon if needed.

Maybe some crypt wendetii red on the side of the smaller rock with a dwarf tiger lotus dead in the middle to break up the green?
Edite: just noticed your all ready adding a lily so maybe ludwigia sp.red? Or some bacopa of some kind?

I definitely like Tiger Lotus looks wise. Maybe I could use one of those in the design. Thanks for the input!

Any time. Best of luck too you. Can't wait to see the final outcome. I like the scape design so far.
