 What  is  your  tank  size.
 The  vals  listed  grow  pretty  long.
 Echinodorus  tenellus   &  Echinodorus  quadricostatus  look  pretty  much  alike.
 You  have  picked  up  a  no  of  low  light  &  high  light  plants,  tenneleus  &  Hemianthus  callitrichoides  require  high  light.  Microsorum  pteropus  or  java  fern  might  not  like  lhigh  lights,  depending  on  where  it  is  placed.
 Put  your  question  other  around,  what  is  the  tank  size,  lights,  low  tech  high  tech.
 Many  persons  have  reported  that  sagitarria  &  vals  have  compatability  issues,  no  personal  exp.  of  the  same.

 You  can  try  Hemianthus  callitrichoides  or  glosso  or  Marcelia  for  the  foreground  and  H.Micranthemoides,   any  variant  of  Hyg.polysperma,  Rotala  walichi,  Mayaca,  Rotala  Rotundifolia  Indica,  ech.  parviflorus  tropica  (difficult)  and  a  lot  of  crypts  to  choose  from.

 one  crypt  you  dont  want  is  C.retrospiralis.  Echinodorus  quadricostatus  is  also  a  good  bet  as  is  C.wenditti.
 
 For  a  tank  this  size,  keep  no  more  than  three  varities  but  plant  them  densely  -  this  will  be  more  beautiful  than  jamming  several  varities  inside  a  tank.

 Hi  friends,
       I  have  decided  to  go  for  these  three  plants  with  some  rocks  as  the  focal  points.
   
 Hemianthus  callitrichoides  -  fore  ground  (will  this  form  a  carpet)
 
 Echinodorus  quadricostatus  
 
 H.Micranthemoides
 
 is  my  selection  right  for  a  beginner.  
 
 I  would  like  to  know  the  light  requirements  /  CO2  requirements  for  these  plants.  I  am  assuming  all  these  plants  can  be  sourced  from  chennai.
