With terrestrial plants, you have to first root them before planting them into the soil. With aquatic plants, since they don't wilt, you can just stick the stem into the substrate. No need to "root"...

No 2 looks ok to me. I think 5 Bettas would put a bit of a bioload on a 20 gal tank, and a single gourami would be kinda sad in there, and probably deserves a larger tank too. Some of them can become...

Have you covered CO2 and fertilizer before you add more light? If plants "pearled" before and now don't, it may be a sign of nutrients running out. Adding more light would spiral this into algae doom...

I got my Harlequins "used" from a friend, and kept them for a couple of years in a tank that is usually around 80, perhaps 82 in late summer, and 78 in Winter. No problems!

Does that root tab contain NPK (macros), or is it just the typical concoction of sulfates with a bunch of random micros?

Can you place the pump above the tank?

CO2 is different in that it dissolves in water, which makes the water appear to back up into your equipment, which may lead to regulator destruction etc.
