Default Will these plants work for a terrarium?

Will these plants work for a terrarium? The terrarium is going to be a 10 gallon tank and will house dart frogs. Here are the pictures.

Will Riccia work as a carpet plant for the terrarium? the substrate is going to be coco fiber mixed with sand, and chopped up oak leaves. Will broms also work?

spider plant- will get to large
Maranthe will do fine
Wandering jew will work but will go crazy.

The rest I can't identify

Broms are good ricia will do well and spread over your substrate.

Well what a collection. Most I can;t ID but the large Maranta with yellow on the leaves will not work. It gets HUGE.

most of those look good, a few I cannot id. The two ferns: the top one will do well... cannot remember the name, the other look like maybe a rock fern or something, and I've had mixed luck with them. Good luck. Most of those will outgrow a terrarium, but they all make nice house plants.

I can id that fern 6 pictures down. if i am right and it is a boston fern it will envelope not only the tank but part of the room. one of the most cumbersome plants i have. lol. but don't be discouraged i would try and go for plants that are a lot smaller to leave room for growth. the wandering jew probably will take over but i would say your best bet is to get plants that have similar watering needs and in a terrarium it has to be a plant that needs a lot of water.

3rd post, 1st plant: I believe this is Tahitian Bridal Veil (Tripogandra multiflora). I have some of this in on of my viv's, IMO it grows best when it is not completely saturated all the time. Except for the wandering jew and , a lot of those look like they are either temperate or get too big.
