first serious attempt at an aquascape

Hey guys, i have been in the aquarium hobby for a few years now, but my focus has always been on fish in the past. i just recently got into growing plants and such.

Tank: 29 gallon
Lighting: 2x24watt t5 HO
Dosing: Seachem Flourish Comprehensive Supplement
Seachem Equilibrium
Aquavitro N synthesis
Pressurized co2 around 2bps
Gravel: 1/4 flourite 3/4 2-5mm aquarium gravel

Please critic the aquascape and advice is welcome on what plants i should put in and where i should place current plants considering the set up i have. please keep in mind this is day 1 and other than the water sprite and cabomba, none of the plants have really grown much since i had those two the longest.

also please excuse how cloudy it looks, after replanting some stuff a lot of white stuff came out of my gravel, i suspect it is probably the equilibrium that had settled there since not all of it gets diluted.

Ive never been a fan of cabomba since it sheds "leaves"

Give it time and stick with the leafy water sprite, grass, and what appears to be ludwigia

As I mentioned in a another post, u might want to try using a plastic syringe to inject Flourish into substrate, to induce root growth at base more so than other regions on stems,

Black or white background?
