Redoing 5g planted tank.

I have a 5 gallon tank with a 13w 6500k CFL bulb. Right now the tank is just a huge mess of filamentous algae tangles and a Cape Fear Spadderdock. I figure the tank is so bad that I am just going to wash out all the algae and make it like new and use black flourite sand and an established sponge filter.

Will that DIY CO2 bottle be enough for this tank?

I'd like not to have to add many liquid fertilizers. What kinds of plants do you guys think would do good? Also, what kinds of fertilizers will I need?
