First of all I would go with the 13 watt light that which will give you a little over 2 WPG. IMO, 26 watt light will be way to much light for a 5G tank. You want to stick with low growing plants for a 5G, so you don't have a lot of trimming to do. I would try some Crypts, Java fern(tied to a piece of driftwood or rock) & Dwarf Sag.. You could even try some Hornwort as a floating plant. Be warned it grows like a weed so you will have to cut some off about once a month.
