HAHA! I must have been typing when you posted those pics - they were NOT there when I scrolled through, lol. . . lemme see. . .
Hrm, iif you're running low/medium light, hairgrass or any type of 'carpeting' plant isn't really going to work for you. Look into Pygmy Chain Sword (echinodorus tenellus) or Dwarf Sagittaria, both of these will eventually fill in and give you a similar . . . sort of. . . appearance. Not exactly as grassy as the DHG would be, but I like the look - definitely more junglish, lol.
For now, you're looking to divide the Puffer's line of sight, so you may want to leave things spread out just as they are, but in my opinion, Elodea looks better when it's grown closer together, in more of a bunch. You'll find that Pondweed does grow like weeds, though - so you'll have enough of it to do that with in a fairly short amount of time if it likes your tank. :)
Is that two pieces of driftwood off to the left of the tank? If so, I'd probably separate them, maybe move one so that it's a bit behind some plants to give more of a natural feel, and if you can find some Java Fern to attach to the wood, that would be beautiful, and work well in this setup. . .
All in all, the tank is off to a good start! I like it a lot, and as things grow in and out, you'll probably want to shift things around a bit, but for now, HUZZAH FOR PLANTS! I'm so excited now to watch it grow, grow, grow!
Puffers. . . are coming. . . TOMORROW!!???? *SQUEEEEE* Gah, I can't wait! Been watching Boredom's tank for ages - such lovely little fish. One day I WILL have one!!! Keep us posted, pretty please!!!
