Default Got down and dirty last night

I am 99...I think.

Ok new to planted tanks but with firm grasp of tank basics. I decided it was time to give my fish a bigger home than the 30 gallon that I started with equipment found on roadside. I know it's getto but it worked out nicely and the fish and plants have been growing.
I have pics but not sure how to upload from iPad.

Have:
72 bowfront oceanic 2x24" current t5 doubles, 2x24" t8, marineland 220 canister (backup), fluval 460 canister, inline heater, eco-complete (bought used) fortified with 25% organic soil, capped with more Eco, driftwood, anubias, crypt brown, horntooth, java moss, amazon sword, mini sword(I think), crypt green (plants are in other tanks currently but will be moved). Angel, 4 Aussie rainbows, 4 Von rio tetras, 4 Dalmatian mollies, otto the otocinclus, and one Malaysian trumpet snail.

Need:
Plants, plant suggestions, planting tools, more rocks, CO2 pressurized (thinking about trying the Petco model $47 bucks), test kit, and another angel fish

Anyone have a good source of plants that doesn't cost a kidney?
