what kind of filtration system?

I am seriously thinking about putting my 58 gal aquarium into a planted tank. It used to be fw, now it is sitting empty. It would be in a lot of natrual light as well as some artificial. I have a fluval that I used with the fw, can I use it for plants? I also had an undergravel, would I use it?

The fluval should work well. I would not use the undergravel as the plants roots will wrap around the plastic and cause quite a mess if you ever choose to move them.

agreed, fluval fine, but ditch the UGF.
