I do not know how big a 6gal is but I am quite sure if the specimens you have fit nicely in it now, that they will be like that quite a long time. The Java fern can outgrow the tank and I do not know how big Anubias nana gets. CO2 might give a small boost on growing, but it should affect too much on these species.

Yes, those will work just fine

They don't grow fast at all, so just buy them small & they'll pretty much stay that way. You could also try to get Anubias Nana "petite" which is an even smaller version.

This is my 6G Eclipse tank before the Anacharis & Hornwort overgrew it :lol:
Lots of Java fern & one Anubias Nana. They're a bit ragged as they're recovering from a nutrient deficiency.
