Hello Boredomb, all the plants mentioned are great. Just for ideas, here is what in my 10g:
Stem plants = Hornwort, Red Hygro, Anacharis, Hygro. compacta which is a new personal favorite
Rooted plants = Compact amazon sword (dwarf is smaller than this), Cyptocoryne wendtii, C. undulata, C. parva, C. cilitia, C. crispatulata, C. sp. (not sure, maybe willisi?), Dwarf Sagitaria, Dwarf Hairgrass, Valisnera sp. (?), Micro Sword, Glossostigma sp.
Other= Java moss, Java fern, Anubias barteri nana
Its a bit of a jungle in there, which I like and so do all the inhabitants. It is a bit of work to keep under control, especially the hornwort, but aside from that there is room to grow. You have more options in a 10 gallon tank than you think. I have low light as well, which makes it harder for the ground cover and micro leaf-sized plants, but they still can survive and grow. My pH is nearly 8 out of the tap, but is stable around 7.5 in the tank. Temp is usually around 75. I keep zebra danios that are adult sized along with a few oto's and of course MTS.
