Restarting a 20g Planted Tank

So I am somewhat new here, made an account a year or so ago and then ended up never logging on... my bad lol.

Anyway! I am thinking about restarting my 20g tall tank as a planted community tank! I have never done live plants before and I would appreciate any input or advice :)
The only tank I have going right now is my 55g Mbuna set up, so for this one I was thinking of going towards more of a peaceful community. I'm open to suggestions.

I have a 4-part series A Basic Approach to the Natural Planted Aquarium that you should find helpful; this is stickied at the head of the Aquarium Plants section.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
