10 G Identification and Algae Issues

I have a 10 Gallon tank with a few ghost shrimps, two Kory Cats, 2 zebra Danios, and 3 cherry barbs. I have four different plants in there but I don’t remember what kind. One is a variant of java fern (I think) and another is a type of anubias. I have a hand mixed gravel and several pieces of rock as well as a large piece of driftwood (mopani?). I would love if you guys could ID the types of plants I have and maybe the types of algae. I occasionally use a fert, but not often, and I don’t use Co2. I’ve had the tank running for several months with all the fish in it. When I first introduced the driftwood, a white fuzzy fungus took over the whole tank. It seems to be mostly gone though. In the photos, you should be able to see the algaes (and my fish photobombing). I also attached a picture of each plant. Btw, sorry for the novel and the picture book lol

Don't feel bad about a wall of text and a load of photos. Most of us here prefer show and tell over just words anyways 🙂

My tank journal.
