5.5 Gallon First Planted tank

I've wanted to start a planted tank for a while now and decided to start small. I bought the 5.5 gallon kit by Top Fin at Petsmart. Im using the filter that came with the kit for now but am going to replace the led with a 16" Finnex Fugeray. I don't know if i should do a diy co2 system or use a liquid co2 like excel. Im also not entirely sure what plants i want in the tank. I was thinking a dwarf baby tear carpet in the front or a monte carlo carpet, s. Repens in the back left, limnophila aromatica maybe behind the big rock but it might be too big and i also like alternanthera reineckii mini and blyxa. These plants will probably be too big for the tank or are too advanced. What plants would you put in the tank? The scape is done but im not entirely happy with it. What changes should i make to the scape?
