I prefer to keep biofiltration in my system, let the plants deal with the nitrate. Ammonia is incredibly more toxic in much lower doses than nitrate.
The good news is that a 90g gives you wiggle room for mistakes.
When I started, I got Dwarf Lillies and some form of Aponogeton that came from Wal-Mart in a dry bulb form. I later added Bacopa Caroliniana to the mix. The lillies are forgiving, as are the bacopas. Both grow relatively fast with decent lighting.
If you want to pay for shipping, I'm getting ready to do some more trimming of the Bacopas. I can send you a good starter bunch. Be warned, I do have snails and some algae cropping up. I love the Ramshorn snails (great aquarium cleaners, and kinda cute), but algae....meh. A good hydrogen peroxide soak would take care of it. I think I have one of my Aponogetons seeding out, so I could try to include some of those plantlets as well. They're tiny right now, but could be fun.

It's CO2. See-Oh-Two. Not C02 (see-zero-two).
