I is difficult to tell you how to plant your tank. It really depends on what you like, what you have access to, and your budget. My suggestion is to look around at a lot of tanks and get ideas and try them out. You will progress over time and get better and better. For most people there is a learning curve that you go through.

One thing though, 834 watts sounds like a lot more light than you need on a 125. And two fx5 is a lot of filtration, but that isn't really an issue.
