Cladophoropsis makes nice low lying turf like Riccia somewhat and Batophora
can make nice accents(but is pesky due to being such a weed).

The Caulerpa's in this tank are the more uncommon ones.

George B. likes Red plants huh?
Plenty of nice reds to choose from here.

I may add some blood and/or clown shrimp(compare these to amano and
Cherry/Crystal Shrimps and I think the fish in Marine systems are impossible
to beat.
