It looks really nice. The only thing I would have done(and trust me, I'm no aqua-scaper), would have been to plant them a bit more randomly, rather than in a row. But they will grow in and expand with good light and CO2.
Keep us posted on their progress.

Since the ultimate goal is to have them all spread into one thick carpet, I don't know that it matters, but you might want to space them out more. Realize the leaves will actually shrink in size. That is emersed growth. The leaves will become thinner and shorter, and is prone to have algae growing in it. Keep it as clean as possible by runing a siphon over it.

Best regards

Go to your local pharmacy and you'll find a variety of tweezers that, I'm sure will cost significantly less than 'plant tweezers' they sell at LFSs or on line.
I use regular ones for planting my Glosso. Some people swear by the pointy kind, but I have a difficult time planting with them.
