Go for it! Check your lighting and make sure it's around 6500 K color temp full spectrum. I put in floating Water Sprite since I took the picture. Don't have real results yet but it's supposed to be good for the tank. There are other floating plants you can use instead. Otherwise don't skimp on the plant density - you should have a lot of plants. Ask around for info on substrate options.
Ah, yes - you had a question... No, I'm not using any CO2 - just fast-growing "easy" plants to start out with: Cabomba, Wisteria, and Water Sprite (planted), and a few others like Dwarf Chain Sword.
Best of luck and success.
