Brackish Planted?

I have a brackish 29g setup with a puffer and a columbian shark. I'd like to add some plants and right now the slainity is 1.009. I use a bio wheel for filtration.

How can I convert this over without distrupting the balance of the tank?
Would the bio wheel create too much turbulence?
If I go with java ferns, java moss and honeyworts, will I need to get a better lighting fixture?

thanks in advance

There are many plants that do fine in brackish water tanks. http://www.aquatic-store.com/index.h...tml&lang=en-us
You do not mention your current lighting set up BUT the plants you mentioned can USUALLY live in most tanks
