YAY! Plants are growing under....

So I have a 5 gallon tank and here are the specs:

Dwarf Sag
Java Fern
Riccia fluitans
Glossostigma
Rotala Indica

Substrates:
Regular storebought gravel

Ferts:
None

Co2:
None

Lighting:
All-American 15 watt undercabinet fluorescent lighting

When I first received my plants about a month ago, my plants started dying on me. I realize the snails were the cause of the problem so I began manually killing them all off and let the MTS alive. The plants right now are flourishing at quite a fast pace. The rotala has about 5 new shoots coming out about 2"-4", the glossostigma has runners while growing in the gravel, the java fern has many new leaves and growing faster than any other plants, the riccia is becoming thick, green, and compact. This is my first planted tank so I'm quite happy with the results. Just wanted to share my joy
