4All of the plants have flourished except the sword and frogbit, which are just kind of staying status quo. I think once the sword's root system gets better established.
The substrate depth is much more than I recommend or what is necessary for rooted plants. With this deep a substrate (organic in nature), it can easily go dangerously anaerobic killing plant roots and then the fish/invertebrates.

Please continue to monitor your rooted plants and fish. It wouldn't hurt for you to poke the substrate every once in awhile with a pencil or similar sharp object. This will introduce some oxygenated water and perhaps prevent a tank "meltdown".

Who knows? With the good lighting you have provided and adaptable plants you may be okay.

Those Crypts look awfully happy. I assume they're leaning towards the sunlight. :p
You've done well. Thanks for the pictures!
