Yo. Ehh perhaps some specs? Size of tank, type/brand of light, brand of ferts? Looks good though there my friend! I see maybe Micro Sword (?), Anubias, Java Ferns, really medium-to-big Amazon Swords...? And a few moss balls. Rotala is the big red one on the right side...? Most of those should be fine under low light, even with ferts...not sure about the Rotala though... (if that's in fact, Rotala...)

No, you don't need CO2 for that light.
The plants in the corners will not survive long. LED lights have the reputation of being "spotty" (wide difference in PAR readings measured right under the light vs corners of the tank).
I'll give Anubias the best chance of surviving followed by moss balls.

Could be wrong but pretty sure mondo grass isn't aquatic and will end up dieing being fully submerged.

Pretty sure it's a bog plant, half in half out sort of deal.
