Welcome to the site, there is a lot of great information and people on here. Wish I could get a deal like you got, must be a great friend. Just make sure you research into certain plants that have strong roots because your pleco will get big over time and may uproot smaller plants. What I did when I first started keeping plants was edit my photo of my tank, with lines running to each plant stating what each one was. This made it easier for me until I knew them by heart. If you need anything feel free to message me, and I'll try to help. Good luck with your tank down the road!!!
The worst defeat in the world, is when you give up.
