My new 20 gallon long planted tank(picture heavy)

I got it this weekend. I bought the plants off ebay and am very pleased with the seller. The plants are in great shape and she sent me 2 extras includeing one of those cute bananna plants. Only problem I have is I am not sure which plants are which. LOL Maybe you guys can help me out.
Here is a full tank shot to begin with:

Then I think this one is a green wendtii there are 2 of them:

Then this one is maybe an Amazon Sword:

And maybe the leaves of the aponogenton crispus:

then maybe the grandlfolussword:

then I think crypt lucens:

a bananna plant:

This one I am not sure:

This is a list of what they should be: 2 JAVA FERNS AVERAGE HEIGHT OF 4-6" AND 7-12 LEAVES EACH, 1 AMAZON SWORD 9-11" TALL, 2 APONOGENTON CRISPUS, BULB PLANT WITH NEAT LOOKING WAVY LEAVES 5-7"TALL, 1 BUNCH OF CRYPT LUCENS,AROUND 6" TALL AND 6-10 PLANTS PER BUNCH, 1 GRANDIFOLIUS SWORD, 10-14" TALL, HARD TO FIND, 1 ANUBIAS CONGENSIS 5-7" TALL
And finally a few pictures of the Honey Gouramis, and peacock gudgeons that are the only fish in there not sure what I may add later and am open to ideas, was thinking maybe rummy nose tetras would look nice what do you guys think:
The Gouramis in there favorite place so far:

Then one of one of the gouramis and one of the peacocks together keep in mind these guys are young and will I hope colorup nicely as they get older:

Feel free to make any suggestions as far as other plants you would add. I will probably move some of the water sprite into this tank from my other tank.

I believe the plant you "aren't sure about" is the anubias congensis. Tank looks good.

Thank you. Do you think a few rummy tetras would be ok to add in a week or so?

Aww thank you Bear. I am going to order some baby tears for it and my other planted tank for some ground cover I think it will add a nice touch.
