Hi Mathkid. Your tank looks very nice. I'm going to bump this up to get you some answers to your questions, hopefully. lol

I've got 'em set up in a 5g, with filter (see attached pic!)

A few questions:

1) There are visible roots on the wisteria, water sprite, and pennywort (see attached images). Do those need to be buried in gravel? Do they need to not be buried?
It's a good idea to bury them. On the floating plants, though, it's not necessary.

2) Should the heater go next to the filter or away from it?
Next to, so that the filter will push the heat around the tank. :)

3) I put the cabomba in the corner by the light - it seemed like the one that'd benefit most from it. The water sprite and wisteria is furthest away - does that seem OK?
Yep. :)

4) Some of the pennywort stems don't have any roots. I've left them floating. Do you think they'll develop some?
Quite possibly. My floaty pennyworts have (mine seems to be some kind of dwarf variety, though.) They have subsequently been buried.

I hope this helps! Your tank looks lovely. :)
