Stem plants and swords, for the most part. Cryptocoryne for the foreground, smaller swords like Echinodorus parviflorus, which tops out at ten inches. Rotala wallachi would be good for stem plants, but has needs high lighting and iron supplication in the water and a fine, iron-rich substrate. The sword, too, needs an iron-rich substrate. Driftwood as well is good to have with tetras. Are you going to use Co2?

I will, once I get a bigger tank - it's a 6G for now, so I don't even know if it's worth investing in CO2 for it...37G - 1 adult male Convict and ~40 of its babies, Java Fern, different Crypts, Anubias Nana and Balansae crypt.

Are there 2 types of Glo(w)light fish? I thought it was only the genetically enhanced Zebra Danios, but are there Glow tetra's too?

There's a Rasbora, R. pauciperforata, that has the electric red line like H. erthrozonus does, but the Rasbora is about a half-inch longer, more slender, and harder to find than the tetra, so those may be the two species you're thinking of, though the Rasbora is from the old world and the tetra from the new.
Thanks for the comments about my primer :)
