Many options so I will list some basics to give you some idea in terms of few important factors to consider:

tank: what shape and what size?

substrate: what kind? some comes inert while others have chemical,
fertilizer additives.

lighting: what kind? in general there are two; Normal Output and
Compact Fluorescent, the latter of which is stronger and more
intensive.

plants: what kind? how many?

***These factors are all inter-related, and are by no means specific. Other people will elaborate or make new points:)

Hi Bosimao,
You can start planting even before you fill the tank with water.
You mention you are using 36W PL light 10K, but how many bulbs? If only 1 you lighting is definitely too low for your 3ft tank if you want to grow plants.
Try to provide more information as requested by SurWrathful and read as many related articles as you can. You can try the following website:
