First tank plants

663 2
I'm going to set up my first planted tank and the list of plants I have decided to put in it is Barclya Longifolia(orchid lily), Dwarf Sagittaria, Java fern, Anubias Barteri(broad leaf anubias), Hygrophilia angustifolia, Red tiger lotus, and Crinum thainum. I was wondering if anybody had any tips or comments. I'm planning on using co2 with a dirt lower substrate with a upper layer of either fine gravel or sand.

I am not understanding why you would use dirt (low tech solution) in a tank where you are going to be injecting CO2 (high tech solution). Also most of the plans you list only require low light/low tech tanks. Are you sure that you need the high light plants in there?
