72 bowfront...first planted tank

So today i decided to officially start my 72 bowfront planted. I dont have many plants seeing how all the ones i had were eaten. The fish responsible are now gone. I removed all the sand i had in the tank. Purchased 4 bags of floramax red cause i had a petsmart gift card and i like the coloration.
Lighting:
Odessya 2x54w t5
Will either buy another one of these since they are cheap or something else
Filtration: fluval 405 & sunsun 404b
Plants:
Hygrophila pinnatifida
(Basically just the stems they were destroyed. Im hoping they will recover since the roots don't look bad)
Hygrophila narrow leaf temple plant
1 mystery plant it looks like dwarf sag
I will be using metricide 14 for my liquid co2 cause excel is pricey on this tank. Also have some dry fertz i will be trying.

Any input would be great thanks

Update of my tank added some bacopa and crypt weditti bronze. Having a issue with this floating grey matter around the tank. Is all over the plants, floramax and sits at the top of the tank also. Added an air pump to keep it from sitting. Any input would be a big help thanks. I also know the tank is hideous its just for now till i sell my current pieces of driftwood they are a bit to large.
