Plants like Anacharis, Water Sprite and tons of others are easy and fast growing. They'll stick right into the substrate or you can even float them if you want.

*tank looks good! Personally I'd start switching out some of the fake ones for real plants. You can get some great info from the guys in the planted tanks section on the site, or check out a website called http://www.plantgeek.net/

Ok, will do. Going on the long run here, but I wanted a silver shark in the future. And some gold barbs. Do you see any problems with having them?

Do you mean Bala Sharks? The size tank they need is extremely debatable. Unless you live at Sea-world I recommend against it. They're super active, need to be kept with others and grow huge. IMO, they're one of the fish which should not be sold for home aquariums. I think the most recent minimum I heard was a 6' tank.

I'm not familiar with any fish people consider "sharks" which do not have a recommended minimum of 55 US gallons.

Yeah you're unfortunately too small for any shark at all. there's 2 problems with keeping sharks, the first is their size, they can get relatively large, the second and more important one, is the fact that 95% of sharks are highly-advanced swimmers, meaning they need tons of horizontal swimming room.....I too wanted a silver shark, but at 300 bucks a piece and not being able to keep other fish..I passed
