New plants!

So I ordered some plants online a little while back and they finally got here today! I spent about an hour and a half planting today. I ordered cryptocoryne wendtti green, another crypt of whose name escapes me, Saggitaria subulata, Taxiphyllum barbeiri, and Hydrocotyle leucocephala.
Hopefully this increase in plant biomass will help keep the algae at ease as I've been dealing with many different types lately.
Anyway here are the pics.

I'm hoping that I can get that sag to form somewhat of a carpet.

Here's when I first got the plants, I was surprised as to how much I got.

It's still has a whole lot of growing in to do and I doubt it will ever grow in completely in this tank. I got a new 30g that I will eventually move all of these plants and fish into. But that's for a different post.

Crypts can be a challange to identify. Without getting a better look at one of your crypts (especially after it has a chance to grow) you may have a balanase of ciliata. Both get large. If it flowers, you have a great chance to ID it correctly. By that time you may be able to ID from the follage anyway.
