Hi Fatreefer and welcome to TPT forum
I too have a 30 gallon tank but only for a year, and I also have two flying foxes, one is about 6 inches with the other one being about one inch less. They are big fish IMO, but very peaceful, and never bother my small fish.
I've been learning a lot in this forum, and I too started with fish only and have now moved to a planted tank. I am currently using pressurized CO2 with an ADA substrate, T5 HO lights, and Seachem line of fertilizers.
There are a lot of people here that can help you answer your questions, a lot of threads that can expand your knowledge, different opinions, methods, and ideas. It all depends on what you are looking for and what you like about planted tanks.
I hope you grow the kind of tank you like and learn as you go. I hope to see you in the forum and learn from you too.
Once again, welcome!
