You may also want to consider Fertilizer (both micro and macro) and CO2. But only if you want to use difficult plants. The plants I recommended above do fairly well without this extra stuff.
Check out www.plantedtank.net
for information. It's a good website and the people on there know their stuff. I go there to ogle their tank pictures.
Oh yea! lol I have those too
I actually joined that site a few days age and have asked them the same question :) I LOVE the tanks there, they are so gorgeous!
