First planted tank advice

Hey guys, I am about to start setting up my first planted tank, in a 40B. This is what I am thinking about for my hardscape. I am planning on raising the rocks up on 3" of styrofoam. It will have eheim 2217 filter, 100W heater, and 2 solormax HE T5 lights, no CO2. I am planning on using fluorite black sand as my substrate, black background.
Was hoping you guys can give me some suggestions/pointers on my hardscape/general plant advice. Also was hoping for maybe some suggestions on plants/aquascape for a first timer that you think would look good in my tank and that I hopefully won't kill right away.
