55G in the middle of a redesign

This is my tank as of yesterday:


Right now, I am in the middle of some serious upgrades that will probably take the rest of the week since I'm being really lazy. :)
In that picture up there all I have in my tank is a pleco. Now I have a pleco and a red tail shark and I added this awesome holey white rock the red tail loves to go and hang out in.
I'm in the middle of replacing some of those fake plants on the left and adding in real plants. I initially added three plants but one is already dead, but the other two are doing just fine. I don't know what's up. I probably messed it up since I have no experience with live plants and I'm just going off what I've read online.
Aanyways.
I'm also going to be adding some petrified wood this guy gave me. He gave like 60 pounds for free. :) What a nice fellow. But it's just this big hunk I need to figure out how I want to break up and put into my tank. Weeee'lll see.
And yeah, I made that awesome stand myself. :)

You didnt mention it, but you need to take out the airstones. They will remove the CO2 from the water

its not necesary, but if you want a successful tnak with live plants it will definatly help to take out the airstone. i had an air driven filter for almost 5 months and i had to cut my plants down every other day. sounds like a great plan you got there!

I agree on taking out the airstones....

What kind of plants do you have in there so far?
What are your plant plans if you're getting more?
