That looks good, I do like that substrate. Live plants will really look nice.
Forget the shell. Shells are calcium and will slowly leech into the water, which will raise hardness and pH. You have a lot of options with a pH in the low 7's, but higher and your options will be limited.
Anubias attaches to wood or rock, not in the substrate, just in case you didn't know. A nice plant for back corners as it needs shade.
