Great plan. Just add fish one species at a time or in small groups. Even the plants need some time to adjust to a new ammonia and CO2 level and the tank can give you a nitrite spike as well.

Keep in mind that plants will look different as they mature, height, width, leaf size etc. I'm finding that what I thought would look good initially has changed. I started out with lots of varieties and still have to decide on placement as things grow.

Keep us updated.... with pics too.

Jeff.
