75 Gallon Communtiy/Planted New

Hey all, figured I'd start a journal for my new 75 gallon tank! Here's what I am working with right now:

Rena XP3
Eheim Jager 300w heater
2x T5HO (6500, rose)
1x T8 (6500)
1 strip LED Moon Lights
Eco-complete substrate

Plants: Aponogeton Crispus, Val, Cryptocoryne mioya, Didiplis diandra, some fern, flame moss, Polygonum k, DHG, Anubias nana, Barclaya longifolia(still bulbs)

Fish: Gold Barb x5, Blood Fin Tetra x7, Khuli loach x4, Oto x5, Nerite snail x2.

Future plans: Hydor in-line heater, CO2 system, Another 2x T5HO fixture. More khulis and school of Choprae danios next! Maybe change around the DW placement?

Since this picture was taken: Moved A. crispus to right side, split Polygonum k, split DHG to make a carpet.

Thanks! I haven't done anything besides buy some plants and throw them wherever they would fit at the moment since I have no experience with live ones, so how things are now is very unlikely how they will be in the future. I figure much of learning about aquascaping and planted tanks will come from experience though so I am trying to be patient .

Does anyone have any advice on stocking they could give? I'm going back and forth on adding a third schooling fish or bolstering the two I have now. This is my first tank of this size and having the ability to add a huge school of fish does sound tempting, but I also like some variety in the tank as well. I've also had horrible luck with the bloodfin tetras (about 2/3 of them have their face "melt" off within a few days, doesn't seem contagious at all I think the stock locally is just bad or something), and I'm not sure I want to deal with that hassle anymore.

Hmmm. I know some barbs and tetras can get nippy. So maybe avoid angels... Consider gaurami and I think you could up the number of your schools a little and add a 3rd schooler.

Thanks for the input!

Would rams work at all in a tank like this? I think I will add some danios, glowlights I believe is the common name, but having something a bit different than the small schoolers I've got now sounds interesting. I'll look into rainbows more before I make any decision, but so far the ones I've seen haven't really done anything for me.
