Smile Juli's First Planted Discus Tank Help Plz

Hello guys,

I have a 75 gallon Discus tank and I have decided to go with potted plants for now because my Discus are still juveniles and I need the ease of care. I have a new T5 light fixture and the two bulbs inside are both Zoo Med, one is called max plant growth 5,000K Flora Sun and the other is Super Daylight Ultra Sun 6,5000K. I have a few plants already potted as you can see in the video I just made below. I have NO idea what plants they are, the plants did not have ID sigh very sigh. Can somebody please tell me what I have in the pots? Also the pot under the wood. The two florals on the right and left that are the same seem to be looking ruff since I planted them. I am going with pool filter sand as my substrate, I want to like to end up medium planted. In the meantime since I am new I need to dig in and get busy on the awesome threads here. Thanks for helping and thanks for looking at the vid. Also how long is enuf light hours for this tank so far.......Julia

The plant to the left of the bamboo looks like water wisteria.
