Ideas for a tank remodel

Hello all! My younger sister has a filterless 5 gallon tank with a few danios and white clouds. Besides the tank size issues, the tank is also a mess with detritus (it was a dirted it's just a mess), is very tannin stained, and no plants except duckweed have survived. Thus, we are planning to remodel it into a 10 gallon gravel tank with a 20 inch LED light that is 50% 10000k, 33% 460 nm, and emits 2,160 lumens (no par given, alas). Also, we are going to add an 160 GPH internal filter for circulation and filtration and will be avoiding dirt this time, just having a gravel bottom. Any thoughts regarding this setup? Any improvements, good plant ideas, etc? Thanks
