Plants and Rocks/stones identification

hi, im new to this site and i LOVE it!. this will be my first dabble with planted tanks in general and to be honest, i think its a bit out of my league lol but i hope it gets easier in the long run.....im not buying or doing anything til im fully confident with my research. so i came across this site with this amazing set up, can anyone identify all the plants and thos rocks/stone he/she used??? http://bp1.blogger.com/_cwbt2D65i9k/...5_original.jpg

i was hoping to house two adult discus in this tank(dreaming lol) so what exactly is the chemistry needed to thrive both plants and discus in this particular set up(i have a 40 tall BTW)? how hard is it to balance whatever is needed to be balance (dont know the lingo hehe) thanks and any opinion and comments are welcome, thanks guys and have a good one

PS and where do i ger these fantastic plants and rocks?

Benedict

spend a few hours reading, this site is amazing.

it took me a few days to read all the articles but it was worth it.

good luck with your information hunt and welcome to growing plants underwater.

I bet your anxious lol. I dont have any idea about those rocks, but the plants look like blyxa japonica (spiky plant) hc (cant remember full name lol, the plant on the bottom) some kind of rotala (in the back right corner) riccia (the light green plant brdering the rock on the left and in front of the rock on the right) and maybe needle leaf java fern (between the riccia and the big rock on the right)

Just so you know a 40 isn't nearly big enough to keep discus in, I don't blame you for wishing it were though
