Fluval Edge Suggestions

I recently purchased a Fluval Edge with the idea of starting a small planted aquarium. I have experience with fish only aquariums, 75g Cichlid aquarium and a 37g community aquarium, but I have never tried to maintain a planted aquarium before. I have virtually no idea where to start. I spent the better part of the day searching the internet and reading the forums to find some info, and while that helped I felt like I needed to discuss it with the people that know it best. Where is a good place for me to start? I know that most people change the light to LED and some add a fluorescent, so I plan on at least changing to LED's. I have Fluorite as my substrate and from what I read that should be fine. I would like to run it without injecting CO2 if I could, is that an option or would that be a problem? I saw that there are supplements that you could add instead of CO2, but I don't know how good they are. What are some good plants for beginners that you would recommend for the edge? Thanks for the help.
