Tank looks good already! I would suggest rehoming the pleco as well, it gets too big for the tank. As already suggested a group of corries would be GREAT in your tank and they are fun to look at. As a side note, you should add some more water to your tank, when the water level gets that low you are making the filter work harder, try and keep it about half-way up the black strip at the top.
You could try removing the drift-wood and boiling it to remove some of the tannins (which are staining your water). You could also add a product called purigen to the inside of your filter pad. Also, if you want to grow live plants you will need to remove the carbon from your filter as it will remove all of your nutrients in the water column. Good luck and keep asking questions!
