Default Spontaneous planted 29 gallon help!

I had many more cichlids than my 29 gallon setup could handle, and I could not keep up with the water changes / cleanings.

The light and heater are 20y old. Literally.
The filter is a Aqueon quiet something 30 purchased 2y ago.

Last night I sold my cichlids and we impulse purchased some substrate and grass and another red leafed plant. (Sorry I don't know what they are I'll post pics.) and 6 ghost shrimp.

Then to make things more complicated when we were cleaning out the tank we found 4 fry. Less than one quarter inch long

I know the basics of keeping a fish tank but nothing about aquatic plants.

The tank is a little cloudy now. Could that be from the sand or is it a problem with the water chemistry?

Does anyone know what plants I have and what sort of care they need?
