Plant selection for a 50G

Hi all,

I made a list for my 50G high tech, CO2, high light tank. I would appreciate it of you could check the list below and tell me if the plants are too many or too few since it's my first serious attempt at planted tanks.

3 x ANUBIAS BATERII
25 x CRYPTOCORYNE WENDTTII
10 x CRYPTOCORYNE LINGUA
10 x CRYPTOCORYNE BECKETTII (TWAITES CRYPT)
50 x ELEOCHARIS PARRULUS (DWARF MINI HAIR GRASS)
25 x ECHINODORUS TENELLUS (DWARF CHAIN SWORD)
50 x GLOSSOSTIGMA ELATINOIDES
1 x ECHINODORUS PANICULATUS (COMMON AMAZON SWORD)
1 x ECHINODORUS CORDIFOLIUS
5 x HYGROPHILA POLYSPERMA (COMMON HYGROPHILA)
2 x bunch LUDWIGIA PALUSTRIS (GREEN LEDWIGIA)
5 x HYGROPHILA ROSANERVIS (PINK VEINED HYGROPHILA)
5 x NORMAPHILA CORYMBOSA (CHERRY LEAF STRICTA)

Please keep in mind that the numbers do not refer to pots but plants.

Your list looks good. Only thing I might suggest is that you might want to limit your foreground choice to 1 or 2 species

50 x ELEOCHARIS PARRULUS (DWARF MINI HAIR GRASS)
25 x ECHINODORUS TENELLUS (DWARF CHAIN SWORD)
50 x GLOSSOSTIGMA ELATINOIDES

I would do glosso and chain sword. Other than that, the list looks good.

Best of Luck!
