It all looks great to me!

Especially that plant, my Petco doesn't have plants like that! They are some other brand and not marked as to exactly what kind of plant. I better check again, maybe it's a new line?

Anyway, I would keep and use all 3 items.

How warm is your house? Keep in mind that those tiny preset heaters only tend to change the room temperature by a few degrees.
Usually my house is quite cold so those didn't cut it for me.

The rest looks good!

I'm not exactly sure what plant that is since we don't have Petco here, but I've heard some people say that Petco also sells semi-aquatic plants, so hopefully yours is a true aquatic.

it's an amazon sword, that's aquatic. also she has a one gallon tank so that heater should be adequate. for a 5 gallon maybe not.

Awesome! I tend to have no luck with those little preset heaters myself, but hopefully yours works. Can't wait to see pics. :)

That amazon sword is going to grow a lot!

If you haven't put it in already, maybe exchange it for a java fern or an Anubias.

I have the same heater in my 2.5 gallon tank. It's just fine as long as the temperature of the room the tank is in is pretty consistent, but it's not cutting it for me. My AC is only on when I'm in the room so the tank gets really warm when it's off and a little too cold when it's on (I like my room pretty cold).
