Are these enough of the right plants?

Hey guys! so I bought some plants off ebay today and was just wondering if this was a good enough combination for a NPT. If this is enough stem plants and such. It is for a 2.5 gal so I didn't want to buy too many for thespace available.

Heres the list:

frogbit
rotala indica
cabomba caroliniana
ludwigia ovalis
dwarf saggitaria
wisteria hygrophila difformis
rotala macrandra giant red
blyxa japonica

Is there any other types I may need?
I have already a moss ball, anubias and crypt.

Sounds like a great list already! What kind of lights do you have on the tank, is it one of the Aqueon Mini-bow's or one of the regular glass 2.5's?

I've got the mini bow. i just picked up yesterday a 50/50 daylight/bluelight bulb says its got 50% 10,000K daylight and 50% true actinic bluelight. not sure what all that means. I went looking for a daylight bulb at ace the other day but didn't find anything, I need to go to lowes and check out their selection.

yea I noticed some of these plants are going to need a lot of light.

You should be very much fine since it's not a deep tank so your red plants should stay red And that bulb will be great! I found Lowes and Home Depot didn't have anything over 5,000K bulbs for CFL's and actually my Wal-Mart had mini CFL's which is what I needed for my tanks but they had much more a selection.

Really? your home depot and lowes didn't have any higher than that? you'd think they'd have a large selection considering their sizes but hey as I've learned plenty of times you cant assume anything.
I guess I'll be sticking to my LPS than because that's where I got that 50/50 bulb. OOOOOo I'm so excited! I'm gonna set up my NPT on Wednesday I think, that's when my plants are scheduled to arrive.
