you should find out exactly how many gallons it is, you can find converters on google really easily.
There are all sorts of cool aquascapes that you could design. You should go to your LFS or petco or wherever you go and find some really cool rocks or driftwood, and start working your scape around those.
My personal favorite plants are vals, p. gayi, stargrass, and ludwigia repens. Maybe use some of those along with echinodorus tenellus for a foreground to set yourself off.

also make sure to buy a good substrate, get ADA aquasoil if you have the means.

English aye? Come join us over at ukaps.org.
As for the tank you can grow anything under a 24w t5. You may even find you need co2, I've ran my tank to rid algae with a single 24w and still kept hc and hairgrass.

Go here and browse the "aquatic garden - small" entries for this year... or even years past at the top. Tons and tons of class aquascapes to browse through for inspiration as well as comments on how they rated with the judges.

Much luck with the new tank! Cheers.
