Man, talk about packing an aquarium.
As previously stated, that tank is gonna take on the appearance of a jungle in very, very short order.
Some of your plants may have been grown emersed, and when totally submerged they tend to drop leaves. Don't pull them. Usually they will come back good as new.
I would caution against using any fertilization for a minimum of 2 - 3 weeks, and root tabs may not be necessary at all. Once they are in the substrate, they need to be left undisturbed until they spend themselves or you could have some serious algae issues.
I have grown Crypts. and Swords (most varieties of both) beautifully for years and never used a root tab. "Root Feeders" will do fine without them, IMO.
