Plant Id please + pics of new build!

I had my axolotle in a 15g long it was boring because of the fish I couldn't plant it so I am building a rimless riparium out of stuff I had laying around the house.
Im less than 100$ into it but you would have no idea lookin at it.


This is what I started with. I picked up the tank an Stan for 50$ on cl about a year ago, it didn't hold water so it sat in storage until now


I derimmed it




I took a magnum hot filter and put hoses on it




I bought some suction cup sponge holders( you can't really see them)

I put some wood and plants that I got with a complete planted tank set up I bought and have no idea what they are. The floating one started out as a piece the size of a quarter and spread like crazy

The plants behind the wood are not staying they are just cabbage chillin for now I may try to salvage some of them





The only pic I have of his old tank


Let me know what you think I really would like to know what that floating plant is I still have to by substrate for the emerged plants, I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to plant as well suggestions, critiscms, any ideas would be great thanks for looking

Nice Axo! Floating plant looks like Riccia to me. It does grow pretty rapidly in the right conditions.

That is a freaking awesome looking pizza.

I like the rimless tank a lot, too.
