Will these plants do well in my aquarium?

Will cyperus helferi and lloydiella grow well in my aquarium? I have a 14 gallon biocube with a 6700k 24w bulb and a 10000k 24w bulb, I only run the 6700k bulb. I fertilize flourish comp twice a week and i have flourish as a substrate I also have a diy co2 system.I was worried that the cyperus will get to big, will it? And will the other plant do well?

I haven't tried those myself but with your bright light and CO2 I should think they will thrive. Moderate light is sufficient according to some of my sources, and most plants will do as well or usually better in high-tech setups like you have.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
