Yeah, get more plants...plants dying doesn't mean failure. I've had plants I can't keep to save my life and others that grow like weeds. If some of these die, you may still find success with other species. Try some easy to grow, undemanding plants like Crypts and Anubias.
You're off to a good start with that scape, it looks nice! Cories would love that sand in front once this thing is cycled.
I did have a bluegill once that ate cooked pasta and bologna rinds as a treat.
Then again, that fish would probably bite on a cigarette butt.
