Tank looks great. I just upgraded from a 55g to a 120g myself. You will need a liquid fertilizer even with fish. There are 17 essential nutrients that plants need that fish waste will not provide. Many people around here use Seachem's Flourish Comprehensive, including myself. I use the amount specified on the bottle (2 capfuls for my tank) once per week, a pay after your partial water change. Another thing I noticed, your sword plants need to be lifted out of the gravel a bit. You don't want the crown (where all the stems meet at the bottom) to be buried in the gravel, only the roots. Otherwise, the plant can eventually rot.

A job well done. Your tank looks great.

A couple brown leaves on new plants is fairly normal. The stress of moving from one tank to another can be tough on some plants. Swords usually tolerate this a bit better, but it isn't a worry. However, pull the sword out of the gravel a bit and pickup the fertilizer as soon as you can. I know even PetSmart sells it. Seachem's makes several similiar products. You want the Flourish Comprehensive, not the Excel. Remember to use the fertilizer the day after your pwc. Depending on the water conditioner you use, the water conditioner can actually detoxify the minerals and metals in the fertilizer that the plants need.
