Greetings / Questions

Hi everyone!
     I'm new to the list, so I thought I'd say hello and introduce myself.
 My name is David, and I am a student at Mississippi State University.  I've
been reading the lists for a while now, getting ready to start my plant
aquariums in my dorm room at school.  My first question is about hornwort.
 How well does it survive temperatures near 80 degrees?  Due to a home-made
lighting hood, my 52 watts of compact flourescent lighting causes my 10
gallon tank to reach these high temps.  The tank has DIY CO2 that bubbles
into the intake of an Marineland 110 Biowheel OPF (without the biowheel) and
an enriched sand substrate for when I finally find some rooted plants worth
buying around here.  There are no fish in the tank yet, but I want to buy
some Paradisefish for it when I find good ones.  Any comments?  Next, I
bought a 175 watt metal-halide fixture for my 30 gallon in hopes of mounting
it in a pendant and growing some plants emersed.  Can anybody suggest some
good plants with this habit?
