i don't think amazon swords would fit in your tank, they get over a foot tall, maybe anubias? they have the same general shape but smaller

Shrimp would be good for that size tank. I like ghost shrimp, they are active and fairly cheap. REd Cherry Shrimp are nice as well, but I have trouble finding places that stock them.
