ok so I need 2-3 floating water sprite and a few of the Valls and that will be enough to support a fully stocked tank while the Bacterial populate? 10-12 fish, juveniles, approx 2" range...?

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
Cj, be sure those plants are non-toxic to your Africans as they will eat them. The problem I have with floating plants is any food you put in your tank is going to collect somewhat on the plant, which will entice the fish even more to eat them. If you try to plant something in the substrate, every African fish I know of is going to continually uproot it because they are sand sifters, that is how they eat. This will cause pieces of plants and roots (if you are lucky to keep it in the substrate long enough to grow roots) to be all in your tank and you will have to keep constantly netting it out. So, the plants eventually die, or quickly die and you have dead plant funk to deal with in your tank, which I am not sure what all that dead funk produces, but I would not want that in my tank water.
