First Rimless 20G Emersed! Help me! :O

Hey PTForum! This is my first time doing a rimless with a predrilled hole. I need some advice on setting up the intake (it looks really makeshift right now) and how to get a carpet plant growing. I have the layout and an idea of where the seiryu and manzanitas going to be. I think a canister filter for this size is pretty overkill but unless I can plug that hole it's my only choice. As you can see the outflow tubing is really shoddy.

Lighting will probably be two clip on LED lamps or wall mounted lamps!
