I'm looking for some "low tech" (dyi co2 until i get another pressurized system, probably for Christmas, lol),medium light (2.25wpg compact fluorescent 6700k) plants to spruce up my wife and son's Betta tank. I am interested in obtaining the following:

-Cryptocoryne crispatula var. balansae 4-5 plants
-Cryptocoryne undulata ''broad leaves'' 2-3 plants
-Cryptocoryne wendtii ''green'' - 5 plants
-Hygrophila corymbosa 'Angustifolia'-10-15 stems
-Hygrophila polysperma 'Rosanervig' "Sunset Hygro" 10 stems
-Microsorum pteropus 'Narrow' -3-4 plants
-Rotala rotundifolia 10-15 stems
-Vallisneria spiralis 'Tiger' 5-10 plants

The tank itself in which I plan to plant these plants is a 16 gallon bow front that is relatively high, 18", for such a small footprint. Do you see any issues with this plant selection. the substrate is a mix of eco-complete, flourite black and laterite. This noob would love any input on this.

p.s. Also I need some 4dKH solution for my drop checker on my other "high tech" tank
