yes i was going to suggest root tabs or eco complete for your substrate. its also a good idea to know what plants you want before buying, some stores will sell non-aquatic ones. a "general rule" for this is, if its self supporting out of water it usually isnt a fully aquatic plant. even the bamboo they sell will slowly die and rot away.
a good idea may be to go on one of the plant buying sites, browse their selection, write down the names of the ones you like, go to google, type in each of the names, find out the plants care requirements, check off your list which you cant keep, take the list to the store and do your plant shopping.
how about your lighting? or atleast your bulb, is it a full spectrum one?
