Default need some help with a couple plant id's and planting suggestions

So I had to pick up some new plants for my 120gal since I really screwed up when I had to CO2 bomb my grow out tank. I was hoping to get some help with id's for some of the plants and what would be the best placement for them. Lighting is a dual compact fluorescent 65watt 6700k super daylight bulbs. I will have them about 8" above the tank which should be perfect for the tank. I have a mist king system and have also added 3 internal fans for for good air movement which I believe after all the reading I have done here is what is needed for ideal conditions.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I think the first fern is Cyrtomium falcatum but I could be wrong. I'm pretty sure it's a juvinile plant though and will get MUCH bigger. #3 is a plant I have growing in the landscape. Not sure how well it will do in a viv but it's worth a shot. #4 is Lysimachia nummularia commonly called Creeping Jenny I believe.

Plant, it's terrestrial... it also tends to almost create a bush...likes high light, NEVER let the dirt dry out!!! its very tempermental about that, so keep it moist... hmmm, i think i should pick another one up now that I think about it... It would be great in the new 18X18X24 im building...

Thank you both for the responses.

boabab95 I will make sure to keep it moist.

Yeah Harry I could not go wrong with the #3 plant I picked it up $1.99 I figured it was worth a shot.

3 looks like Euonymous fortunei a variegated type, but it could also be a variegated Trachelospermum jasminoides, its hard to tell from the pic. The TLC one looks like a Sedum, probably not a good candidate for a viv. ANd I agreew with Harry on the ID of Cyrtomium falcatum for 1, a Holly Fern.
