You're off to a good start.
My only comment/advice would be to put in some fast growing nutrient-sponge type floaters to help get you started. My favorite is HornWort, them Water lettuce. Duckweed is functionally good but, I don't care for it in my tanks due to the mess.
You can remove them as your plants start to take off. You can tell by the growth rate of the floaters, as they slow down the tank is getting in balance.
Best of Luck.
