Default Help with 40 Breeder Planted Aquarium Setup

Hi everyone,

I'm setting up a 40 Breeder Aquarium at the front office of my school. The tank is already up with water. I used a 40 lb of Eco-Complete, a Nicrew ClassicLed Plus (30"-36"), a Penguin 350B (super cheap $20), I added 2 foam blocks of Poret from SwissTropical to the Penguin (the filter has room for extra media). I was planning of using a 3D background but was too expensive so end up using a printed background like a photo. Looks OK. Please see pictures below:

This are some of the plants I think will be bulletproof. This tank will be maintain by the school office manager so it needs to be bullet proof. I'm even planning to use a timer for the light. Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong and to add some other nice beginner plants not included.
