Default New 65 gallon planted tank

Hello, I have recently set up a new 65 gallon planted tank. I have a few different plants in it, not sure what they are, just went to the fish store and bought some plants I was told were low light. The lights I have are 3 100W daylight 6500K CFL bulbs.

The tank currently has 6 tetras and 3 tiger botia. All fish seem to be doing well. The tiger botia I rarely see, they just hide in between the rocks.

I am looking for stocking ideas. I would like to have one or a few larger fish along with some smaller ones.

Also are there any plants that would work for covering the ground ? That don't require co2 or fertilizer or anything special like that.

Here is what the tank looks like now:
