That sounds like it would be too deep. You might end up with anaerobic spots (http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/showpost.php?p=2004223&postcount=18). I would keep it to 2-3" and save the extra sand...

Your "Aqua Fern" (Trichomanes javanicum) is non-aquatic and will die in the tank. And if you put that duckweed in the tank, you'll have a heck of a time getting rid of it.

Aponogeton bulbs are not a good way to start a tank. Crypts, stems, and swords are better. But nothing will grow well if it doesn't have enough light or CO2.
