Starting low tech ghetto 90g planted aquarium

I will be picking up the tank tomorrow. Today I bought the gravel 160lbs of pea pebbles that took four hours to clean and rinse LOL. Not sure what I will have in there but I have some hair grass java moss chain sword and riccia that I could put in there. Not sure about the riccia though since the aquarium only has a standard four foot fixture with two bulbs. I will be starting it out with a whisper 3 filter that is good for up to sixty gallon aquarium to get it cycled using filter media and some gravel from cycled aquarium. Anyone else with low tech 90g aquarium?

Aquariums should smell like a pond. Just like where the fish come from.
