I have a 10 gallon tank that i'm setting up, i just finished the cycle today, and i'm looking to plant it, i have Fluval Shrimp Substrate, it's a lot like a dirt, my PH in the tank is a steady 7.0(that substrate is amazing). I'm looking to plant and scape the tank to be natural. I want the foreground to be planted similar to this, and with the two large corner bush plants like that as well, but in the middle i want a piece of driftwood with moss on it. I want it to be natural, with lots of hiding places.

I also like the idea of having dwarf hairgrass.

You could do a pretty easy set-up like that with java fern, java moss and/or Christmas moss. Dwarf hair grass is a mid-high light plant, as are most (all that I have found) ground cover plants. Look up low-light plants and see which ones you like the best.

For starters i got a pot of dwarf baby tears, and a crypt type species. Also got a rather large piece of driftwood as well. And to top the aquarium off i got a nice new hood and light
