Looks pretty good.
If the water does not clear in the next day or at least look like it is clearing, close the drapes behind the tank. It should clear up after that.
Don't do water changes and just let the plants condition the water. The water will be perfectly acceptable for the fish and there is much less chance the water itself actually caused problems.
Per my usual instructions try adding a single fish after a week and do not add food for a week after that. Then add a few more fish as start feeding 1 flake per day. The idea is to limit the bioload and for the fish to survive off the infosoria, and snail eggs on the plants. While the plants consume the ammonia and aerobic bacteria build up.
But sure looks like you're off and running.
Keep us posted.
As usual just my .02
