You are going to be floored by how fast these guys grow. Everyone thinks they will have the time to get a bigger tank, but if you buy them at half dollar sized today, you'll need to start cycling your bigger tank no later than Christmas.
Good Plants: Java Fern (narrow is best), Vallisnera, Giant Saggitaria, Narrow leafted sword plants (Uruguay Sword). Angels like strong verticals. Round it out with a nice broad leafed rosette plant in the midground just off center (like a Cryptocoryne wendetii or an Anubias barteri v. nana) and you'll have something pleasant to gaze on. Mabe break up the background planting with some Brazillian pennywort. The round leaves make a really nice contrast if planted just in front of a stand of vals.
