I've had great success with wisteria, ludwiga, cabomba, and willow hygro (hygro angustifolia) in a 2.5g glass tank with a 10w mini tube cfl. I haven't really touched the tank since I planted it except to trim the plants down a little bit now and again.

The smaller anubias looks nice tied to rocks

Since I just started a 2.5gl I would really love to see these plants in your set up. I'm trying to find plants for Meow.

I bury it in gravel: it rots. I bury it in sand: it rots. I bury it in river rock: it rots. I let it float: it rots. I tie it to something: it rots!

If you want a super easy, really nice plant that looks beautiful, toss in a banana plant. The one I have has sprouted 3 new leaves since I got it and is now in the process of rooting itself into my tank. The largest leaf is about 3 inches across now and getting bigger. I'm not exactly sure on how it would be in a 2.5 but mine seems to be doing well in my 5.5 :)

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

microswords and chain swords would make a nice undergrown or shrubbery for a small tank.
