As far as your 5 gal. I have a 3 gal eclipse, with the stock 8 watt light 67K. I have cacomba, water wisteria and a dwarf sword as well as java fern. All seem to grow well, but the wisteria and the cacomba has to be pruned back from time to time to make sure the sword gets enough light. My wife has a 5 gal hex, with a 28 watt PC bulb in it. I personally think the light doesn't make it to the bottom but it her java fern is doing well and her anubias is planted at near the top of the tank on a piece of driftwood.
Bunches of tanks.
