Good looking tank! I can't wait to see it with fish in it and after the plants have grown out a bit. I really like the background, too.

Wow, it's coming along really nicely! The background looks very effective and once the plants start to grow out a bit it's going to look awesome. Fantastic job southafrica!

i think ive found out what the other plant is, it looks alot like water sprite so im guessing it is. Meatpuppet i would reccommened getting watersprite for your 5 gallon as it has helped keep away algae and it grows quickley :D

More info on watersprite: it's a quick growing plant that, as stated, will do a good job of competing with algae for nutrients. You can plant it and depending on how often you trim it back, you can make it a wide, bushy plant (trim often) or a taller, thinner plant. It also makes a great floating plant and will quickly spread across the surface.

Awesome plants. :D
When I go to the pet store, I want to buy plants, but I'm afraid I won't be able to care for them properly.

thanks pink fishie, dont worry about the care of the plants, i had no clue about the care of plants when i first bought, and they grew really well :). if you dont have the best lighting go for lowlight plants, and plants like java moss, and (in my opinion) watersprite, as they dont need much attention.
i got the java moss :) and bought some liquid fertiliser and parts for my diy co2 :).
also thanks iamntbatman for the info :D
