Check petsmart.com for silk plants, lots of good ones there.

I'd take that heater and rotate it 90 degrees. It'll do better running across the width of the tank as it will more evenly heat it and the thermostat won't be artificially tripped by the warm water rising off the heating element.

It was one of those stick on the outside ones.
It says they're removable but when I tryed to take it off my old tank it ripped into pieces, So I bought a new one last night.

Don't trust the stick on ones. Trying to measure the temperature of something through an unknown insulator isn't a good way to do things. I prefer just a simple $2.50 suction cupped thermometer. Not even digital.
