My tank is 78 with a wide variety of plants and fw fish. Your setup seems fine. Look for easy growing plants, the only chemicals u should need are plant fertilizers, and water conditioner, if u have algae there is a problem. Take in mind that even the healthiest planted tanks have a wee little bit of algae. Its natural. If u don't want to buy a new substrate, look into osmocote plus. Stick a few undergravel for the roots and they last a few months. They are far cheaper than flourish tabs. If u plan on getting serious. Research c02 injection, otherwise find low light, low demand plants, this way you won't have leaves turning sickly colors and melting.
