Talking Suggestions for my new aquarium!

Today is the day I decided to get my aquarium started for my baby, Speck, despite my original intentions to wait until I head back to school. (S/He's currently chillin' in a large fish bowl.)

I went to Petsmart and Petco and came home with a 5.5 gallon aquarium, three plants (anubias nana, java fern, and amazon sword), one larger silk plant, a (non floating) betta log, and white gravel. My sister made fun of my plants, but she doesn't understand! :< I already have a thermometer, marimo, food, water conditioner, and small pot for Speck to hide in.

I'm planning on setting up the aquarium tonight and letting it cycle before moving Speck. (Don't worry, I'm doing water changes in his bowl.)

Sp, does anyone have any suggestions for me?

I think you're all set! (: That already seems a lot, especially with all the things you've had from the start. You can add more plants; like water wisteria or even duckweed and frogbit. Plants are addicting as most say. Hope you have an ammonia source for the cycling?

Those links for the cycling instructions with fish in the tank and the other link is for the water changes in the abolished tank
