It absolutely does not require bright light.

Mine has been slowly growing in a 2.5 gallon tank with no light in a dark corner and no filter. It's about as hardy as java moss in my experience.

If you rinse the eco-complete, you are probably going to have a new cycle on your tank. Which means I hope you don't have fish. If you do have fish that you're going to add to the tank immediately...

Looks like a ludwigia or bacopa species. Maybe look through all the common species in those genuses and see if something matches?

Hydra are really not much more than inverted jellyfish. Certainly not something you want in your tank. :)

You won't need more rock if you get a lot of plants. In fact, I usually end up taking rock OUT of my tanks as they mature, because I end up wanting more space for plants.

I'm going with either Hets (Heterandria formosa) or Clown Killies (Pseudepiplatys annulatus) in my next tank. Both do best in species tanks and will easily breed.
