That should work, with the live plants. You can add some substrate-type fish, I always think they add character to characin displays, and the small catfish I'm thinking of do not contribute much to the bioload. Whiptail Catfish or Twig Catfish [this one needs soft water, the Whiptail is OK with soft or medium hard], 1 of either or 1 of both, or 2 of either.
