Any suggestions before planting?

Just wondering if anybody has any advice or thoughts before I plant. I just ordered plants and I just ordered a wide variety because I'm still undecided on what look I'm going for. This is a tank in our office building and the left side is a hallway so most of the traffic is on that side so I couldn't hide the plumbing but I will plant something there to take your eye off of it. It is a Fluval Studio 900.
Let me know what you think.
Thanks in advance

the scape looks fantastic

some thoughts.

have lots of plastic tubs and lids to sort the plants
have scissors handy to trim roots and dead leaves
have tweezers or pinsettes handy to plant esp foreground type plants
have plenty of dechlorinated water
have a mister bottle
be very careful when you fill the tank with water, very careful not to disturb anything.

Thank you. I'm think I'm going to put a rock or two on the right side to make more of a focal point.
Any suggestions on plants??
