10 gallon low-notech tank

I am helping a friend set up a ten gallon planted tank.  So far He has a
ten gallon tank kitty litter substrate 1.5 inches with a 1 of texblast
over it, and  2 20 watt floresencets over it.  No filtration.  One 50 watt
heater to keep the tank at 76F and DYI CO2 injection.  In the tank I would
like to put a SAE, and otto, and a pair or trio of dwarf corys, to keep
the algae down and the surface of the substrate clean. He want to put in a
pair of apistos. 

I am looking for suggestions of plants that will do well in a 10 gallon
and not grow to big.

this is what I am thinking of to begin with:
some mexican oak  to grow out of the back of the tank.  
1 braizallina sword Spathiphyllum tasson( soppoased to grow out of water)
some scarlet Hygro (suppoasled grow out of the water)
a madagascar lace (doesn't get majestic but grows well in a 10 gallon)
2 or 3 Crypts what ever they have at the LFS

My mate Peterson once bought a pair of shoes with artificial intelligence- 
smart shoes, they were called. It was a neat idea - no matter how blind
drunk you were, they could always get you home. But he got ratted one
night in Oslo, and woke up the next morning in Burmah. You see the shoes
got bored just going from his local to his flat. They wanted to see the
world, like, y'know. He had a hell of a job getting rid of them. No matter
who he sold them to, they'd show up again the next day. He tried to shut
them out, but they just kicked the door down, y'know. Last thing he heard,
they'd sort of robbed a car and drove it into a canal. They couldn't steer
you see...
