Nice one! It can be difficult to pull off the hard scape in a small tank like that, but I think you did a great job. You just need to get some really bushy growth at the back and you'll have a winner!

nice tank, you might want to change the anubias barterii, to 'nana' and also change the stems to a finer leafed plant like rotala wallichi to keep it simple.

some hairgrass might look good too

I think there are some non aquatics in there if you look carfully. Unless you know better that is.

I had emersed E T and it looked alot like it does underwater... that plant appears to have a rhizome like a palm tree.

I would not be surprised at all if one or two are non aquatic but oh well, will keep a vigilant eye out if they start to mush and if they do out they come. Yeah i cant wait till the HC spreads out and the moss grows loads. Also when I can get hold of really nice stemming plants, at the moment I just grabbed anything they have in the store, at £2.95 + 25% discount i can be a bit wishy washy at the moment!
