You could get a big group of Cory cats. Kuhli loaches are a favourite but you might have some trouble with fish picking in them while there small because they look like worms.
Also shrimp are always fun depending on how planted and the amount of hideimg spots they could work.

Some plecos make good candiates for planted tanks. Eg zebra pleco - they carnivorous.... BN also make good additions as well.

Maybe siamese algae eaters? Whiptails/twig catfish? Have you thought of including rams or apistos? What about geophagus?

Corys. You'll love 'em. Can almost guarantee that. Keep 'em groups of 5 or more is ideal. Yes, bristlenoses...snails...twig cats...with a big tank like that, pretty much any Pleco or catfish...uh...there's a LOT you could choose from! FYI, Kuhlis do hidea lot though in the sub. And are pretty good at it too.

But better than that is a massive school of kuhlis. Trust me, having a school of 20+ kuhlis is hilarious to watch, they drape themselves everywhere like christmas decorations.
