Just a comment on selection. Choose plants that will suit your setup, both geographically and technically; these are interconnected.
Geographically means the plants and fish are compatible: share similar water parameter requirements, or if the fish have a need for plants for some purpose (spawning sites, security, browsing, shading light...). It can include being true to a geographic area, like all Amazon plants and fish, or all West Central Africa, or SE Asia.
Technically means the plants will suit your lighting, fertilization and again water parameters though to a much lesser extent.
