Will these work in a 2.65g?

I really like pennywort, frogbit and bacopa but wondering if they would work in my 2.65g. I like a lush tank, but still want it functional for my betta.

Here is my latest set-up:

ofcourse, bettas reallly enjoy their planted tanks ^___^
Here's my fully planted 2.5 All the tallish plants are at the back. I leave a free space at the front for swimming

Those floaters with the giant roots on the top left is the frogbit. lol

Wow Aokashi, the frogbit is sure happy in that tank! It's going gangbusters in there!

Waterdog - I don't have a special dedicated light yet, still working out what to do. My tanks have really lame lids that don't accommodate a light. I can't seem to find a good desk lamp to hover the top. Any suggestions?

I don't personally have experience with this light. I was just trying to find something he could use since he doesn't have a standard lid.
