Ok well here's my list, ill be running a 13w pc 5100k bulb. I thought about making it a 2x13w but without C02 it will be waited.

*Dwarf sagittaria for the forground (i really wanted brazillian micro sword but i don't think it will grow with that low lighting?)
*Compacta Amazon
*Few Banana Plants
*Nymphaea lotus

What do you think? Any suggestions or changes?

Banana Plants - I must be thinking of something else than you....
A plant as tall as a house?

well i would have to say that most of your plants on your list will out grow that tank in no time. But wisteria and banana plant and compact swrod and the lotus would be nice , but it mostlty will outgorw your tank. you should try some petite anubias nana

The dwarf Sag will be fine. The lotus will get much to large for your 6G. The other plants will be fine as long as you don't mind doing a little pruning!

oh i don't mind doing lots of pruning. Ive decided to change it to a 12 gallon with 24w of pc lighting over it, should give me a little more space. I would really like to add something red or purple with a different shaped leaf, any thoughts? I thought of red temple, and then just trimming it alot but i can't quite figure how i want it to fit into my tank.
