If you find the right amount of light, you can grow a decent variety of plants without co2 or excel. Check out my 26g bowfront in my sig for plant ideas.

In my opinion, definitely do a dirt substrate with a sand cap. If you want a nice cheap black sand check out black diamond blasting sand. Looks great! My friend has it in his 75. As for fish, most community fish won't eat plants...
