This is all very bewildering and addictive, this will be my first ever aquarium (or since like 30 yrs when i was just a kid we had one).
Will an aquarium with just two different plants be ok? Or boring?
Btw just visited Stockholm aquaria. What a lovely saltwater tank they have.

If you went with a low light plant tank you could plant a few species of crypts to give it some sense of smaller and larger plants, adds some variety. I started out trying all sorts (about 30) and have settled less than 20 but my favourites (if i had to pick three) are crypts, dwarf Lilly and floating Brazilian pennywort.
I included a shot of my lowest light crypt corner.
