Hey - beautiful tank. Well, the aquarium store had my leggier plants labeled as Anacharis, but I'm not quite sure if they are or not. I have several sprigs of hornwort in my tank (finer-leafed, hard to see in my photo). Supposedly they're floaters anyway and rot if buried (they don't form roots designed for anchoring), so they come out of my gravel. I just let them go crazy and float if they want to.
I don't use root tabs - I just add 1-2 drops of Nutrifin aquatic plant food to my water changes and their lighting is a daylight fluorescent left on ~10hrs/day.
