 You  need  to  add  some  liquid  fertilizers  and  start  some  DIY  Yeast  CO2  and  you  will  be  set.  The  CO2  should  be  your  next  step

 Not  really
 Vals  and  the  Lilly  are  definitely  too  large  for  the  tank.
 The  Egeria  and  Hygro  will  grow  fairly  fast  and  you  will  be  trimming  away.  The  crypts  and  the  Ech  tennelus  are  probably  okay.  Whats  sort  of  crypts  are  they?
