Fluval Spec V

hi guys, bit of a noob here. my first real fish tank since i had a gold fish called bob at age 5. got it in september and been through a few changes already. couple of plants died/ rotted from the bottom due to light not being strong enough i think. so this is it as it stands now after a good clean out and change around. this is the last plant kind of going strong, started using some fert to get them going abit more. any suggestions on other plants? hopefully getting rid of the guppies and getting some shrimp in there.

That looks lovely. I'm no expert, but I think some anubias petite nana and Java Fern would do OK with that light.

got myself a light upgrade but they sent the wrong size, but they are sending a replacement and said i could keep the short light aswel. quids in. its a pro z led from upaqua on ebay and its outstanding. i modified the short light to fit the like a fluval light while i wait for the longer one and its worked out really well to be honest. i now have some java moss and java fern in there and once i get my co2 set up ill get a few more plants.
