I am currently aquascaping my 20g long with mostly stem plants and a sprinkling of Anubias and ferns. I would stick to species that have small leaved plants (in the aquascaping forum, there is a discussion on nano tanks... it has a good list to work from):

Foreground, the tank isn't very tall so you will want the shortest plants possible. Personally, I would go with Glossostigma elatinoides. You have the lighting for it! :)

Anubias nana, Bolbitis heudelotii have proven to be good choices for me. Wendtii 'bronze' is a small crypt with interesting texture and color.

Good stem plant choices include anything with small leaves --Mayaca fluviatilis, H. micranthemoides (baby tears), H. zosterifolia (stargrass), Didiplis diandra

For red plants, Rotala indica, Rotala wallichii, and Ludwigia repens are commonly available choices.
