The Vals will look really nice in that setup! I had them for a bit, but they never really did very well for me. From what I've read they can be iffy about soft water, but some people have had success, so hoping you're one of those! I ended up replacing my vals with Crypt.Spirallis. Its more willowly than the straight grassy blades of the vals, but is still a very pretty, similar plant. The odd thing is that, even though my vals didn't thrive, they DID continue to multiply - I had runners everywhere. Never did understand that!
In my tank, the Chain Sword and the Dwarf Sag do stay nice and low, they're just. . . bushier than the hairgrass would be. Those new lights look cool, though. I don't know anything about LED - would that put you in a higher lighting than you are now?
Whatever you end up with, I'm SURE it'll look fantastic! It's a nice setup, I really can't wait to see how the Puffers like it!!!
