Growing in my 6gl I have java moss, java fern, bacopa caroliniana & monnieri, cabomba caroliniana, cryptocoryne undulata, didiplis diandra, hygrophila difformis, and one other plant that I have no idea. Most of these are stem plants so while it sounds jam packed I have two stems of this, two stems of that, etc. I use this tank as a propagation tank. Cuttings taken from my display tank are put into this tank. Once they grow too large they are taken from this tank and put back into the display, and the cycle repeats itself.
As far as the filter flow modification I cut a 3" circular portion of a plastic liter bottle that "wraps" over the outflow so the flow goes across the top rather than down. I'm terrible at explaining these type of things. I'll go back and see if I can find the thread where a picture was sent to me by another member showing me how to cut the plastic bottle piece so that it fit perfectly.
