From the plants previously mentined, I would omit Vallisneria. In soft acidic water it does not always grow well; it is a true hard water plant. The others are fine, but you have a lot of light over them. Floating plants will be mandatory to help reduce the light or algae will take over. Ceratopteris cornuta is ideal as it is also SE Asian.

I would go with sagittaria species...
Hygrophila difformis, crypts, aponogetons (many), and rotalas are all southeast asian...

I can offer more if you like. :)

Oh, and Monosolenium Tenerum. It's wild-looking... Almost like a mutant pennywort that works well in the foreground..
