Do the bunch plants (pennywort, hygrophila) comes in bunches of 5 stems? One bunch would be sufficient. Just wanted to clarify. Once settled, these will spread fast. Same with the pygmy chain sword, I would suggest 2 plants will do it; within a few months the substrate will be covered wall to wall. Once you start chucking out plants and bits of plant every week you'll wonder why you spent money for so many.
Frogbit is a nice floating plant, but I have little luck with it, and some have suggested it will not do well in covered tanks, so keep that in mind if you plan on covering the tank. Pennywort is superb floating, so that will take care of that anyway. But if it settles in, frogbit will also rapidly spread, almost like duckweed so that may clue you in. Salvinia too; I like this plant, had it years ago but can't find it locally now.
