Go ahead and look not only on these forums but also the older forums. There's a lot of stuff there that couldn't be moved. http://www.aquabotanic.com/boards/index.php
You may want to take a look at my tank. It is a U shape with a large placement at the left optical center. My tank is a different set of dimensions but the ideas may be the same.
e.tennelus(micro) and hairgrass would make a nice foreground.
For good ideas on java moss and java fern you might want to look at some of amano's tanks. Those plants are fairly prevalent in the config you are looking for and he has good principles documented.
I have a personal preference for green temple over swords. Its personal but I really like the growth and color better. The size and form is a lot easier to manage, especially if open water is a concern as it grown in a cylindrical shape.
Sunset hygro grows like a week, so you'll need to give it plenty of room. You can even just band it together behind some wood and let it go. With regular pruning needed its an easy way to just pull it out, wack off the bottoms and return them to a position.
Wysteria takes some time to get started but once it has roots planted, it will take off sending out limbs. Its easy to prune limbs and replanting is only really necessary when the feeder roots get to be an eyesore.
Depending on the ludwigia, it all grows welll and will redden with good traces and high light. You can wither top and replant or trim the tops. Most ludwigia plants have nice rosettes on the tipps and I ususally top and replant to save the rosettes and the color. James Hoftiezer
