It's hard to tell in that picture, but is that cyano on the driftwood and gravel? It has that emerald/blue-green cyano look to it.
As for plants, try to find some Hygrophila polysperma or water sprite. I like Hygro because it looks better and it can actually be used in an aquascape later on. Stay away from anubias and mosses for right now. Heck, you could even get a handful of Riccia and float it...that's a real nutrient hog.
