- amazon sword x 2
- ozelot sword x 1
- italian vals x 2
- alternanthera reineckii x 3
- micro sword (lilaeopsis nova-zelandiae) x 6
- dwarf baby tears (HC) x 3
- java moss x3

Be careful with the swords as they get very big fairly quickly. I had to remove an amazon sword from a 33 gallon tank because it was so big it was blocking the light to most of the tank. You might try tropica swords or red melon swords as they tend to stay smaller. I don't know how big the ozelot will get.

The vals will grow to 24" tall and cover your water surface. The swords will get huge. One would be too big and you are getting 3. You might want to rethink these choices.

The other plants should be fine. I don't think you are going to need of each plant. Maybe 2 at most. They will grow fast. :D

I wouldn't get the alternanthera reineckii for they are high light plants. The baby tears require hight light too. Marsilea minuta would be a good replacement for it. Corkscrew val might be better for they are the shortest of vals.
