New to freshwater

I have been in the saltwater reef tank hobby for about 1.5 years. It's been a rough road but have finally got the hobby down to an enjoyable thing. I do maintenance on my tanks weekly and check all parameters twice a week. I love sitting back and just starting at the fruits of my labor.
My pride and joy is my 55 gal reef tank:

But now, I am happy to say that I have been researching freshwater tanks and decided to start up a 29gal community tank with live plants. I love it and it's definitely new to me but I wanted to get some pointers on how to keep my fish and plants healthy. Also tricks of the trade you have learned over the year on how to supplement and maintain a healthy tank and fish.
What I have so far:

I have a canister filter and 2 whisper HOBs.
I add liquid CO2 for the plants and vitamins for them as well twice a week. My plants are browning in places and I have lost 3 guppies. Any advise?
Thanks and it's great to meet you all!!

Welcome! Thanks for the photo share I'm biased but love injected CO2 for planted tanks.
