hoping to find solution for a 75g

Hello, I have a 75 gallon "reef ready" tank. It has an built in overflow to a wet/dry filter with a 950 gph return through a uv and has a 4x96 watt pc hood on it. I am going to make my wet/dry filter into a "wet" filter. Problem is that I had a reef tank, and took it down because I just dont have the energy to deal with making RO water, mixing salt etc. It has been sitting empty for a while now. I would like to make it into FW but i believe all FW tanks should have at least SOME plants( except those with herbivors or other fish that dont come from planted areas).

ANYWAY, my question is, is there anyway to make it into a low matenience tank with minimal dosing and no CO2 injection? Maybe just use to lights? I obviously will use anubias and java fern, anything else i can grow without CO2 since I do have a fair amount of light? Does not need to be a full blown planted tank, just have some plants since they are the basis of life.
