Fine, but you did ask us for suggestions on fish and plants. Without knowing your tap water parameters, this we cannot do. For example, if you have hard or very hard water, you will not have success with South American dwarf cichlids. On the other hand, if your tap water is soft like mine, you will not be able to keep African rift lake cichlids.
I don't know how experienced you are, so I will say that knowing your water parameters is the first thing to find out. You can do this from your water supply folks, many have websites with data posted. Selecting fish that prefer what you have is much easier than attempting to adjust water parameters, which can be difficult and very expensive.
