 planted_nano  the  plants  you  have  mentioned  grow  pretty  tall  and  you'll  have  your  hands  full  trimming  them  all  the  time  also  for  your  tank  size  a  28W  CFL  should  do  fine  but  then  again  that  depends  on  the  plants  needs.

 glossotsigma  and  hc  -  need  high  lighting  and  very  good  substrate  ,  Laterite  and  soil.  They  are  not  easy  plants  to  grow.  They  are  probably  something  that  you  can  try  later.
 
 Anubias  is  a  great  choice  for  starters,  low  light  ,  can  be  managed  without  Co2  ,  you  get  varities  here  (  petite  ,  Broad  life  ,  Barteri  )  and  you  could  make  an  Anubias  only  tank.  
 
 javamoss  -  Mumbai  ,  might  have  a  problem  once  temp  picks  up  ,  they  all  melt  away  ,  but  since  the  weather  is  decent  now  you  can  try  it.  moss  is  also  diffcult  to  get  in  Mumbai.  My  suggestion  is  go  for  some  wood  ,  with  some  Anubia's  and  some  moss  (  it  might  be  expensive  ).  
 
 Once  it  settles  then  you  can  add  some  more  
 
 800-1000  might  be  a  less  in  case  you  are  expecting  to  do  everything  in  that  ,  if  you  go  for  an  anubia's  garden  then  might  be  able  to  fit  it  
 
 All  the  best

 Anubias  is  a  great  choice  for  starters,  low  light  ,  can  be  managed  without  Co2  ,  you  get  varities  here  (  petite  ,  Broad  life  ,  Barteri  )  and  you  could  make  an  Anubias  only  tank.

 javamoss  -  Mumbai  ,  might  have  a  problem  once  temp  picks  up  ,  they  all  melt  away  ,  but  since  the  weather  is  decent  now  you  can  try  it.  moss  is  also  diffcult  to  get  in  Mumbai.  My  suggestion  is  go  for  some  wood  ,  with  some  Anubia's  and  some  moss  (  it  might  be  expensive  ).

 At  thousand  bucks  you  will  get  enough  plants  to  cover  your  tanks  multiple  times,  why  bother  about  exotic  stuff  when  you  are  starting  off...gather  some  practical  experience  of  keeping  plants  and  then  venture  into  the  costly  varieties....start  with  a  EL  Natural  method,  read  in  the  net.  Search  with  Diana  Walstad,  you  can  start  off  in  your  budget.

 pls  do  not  go  for  glosso,  as  you  will  be  wasting  your  money  IMHO.  Go  for  crypts,  they  are  good  to  look  at  and  will  manage  in  this  setup.
