20gallon Tall South American

This is just a small project till I get the basement finished and can set the 75g back up. Its been about 4-5 years since I last had a tank and I really miss my planted tank so here it is. Basically im using this tank to get back into the hobby. Mostly plan on using it to grow out plant so I don't have to buy as many or wait for them to grow in the 75g

Dimensions: Odyssea Cube 20 bow-front 19x16x16
Lighting: Odesses 72w (2 bulbs) 1- Coralife 10,000k 36 watt.
Filter: Eheim 2026
Substrate: MGOPS capped with Stratum Fluval
FISH: None need to cycle

I plan on getting a 6500k bulb and using both till the 10,000k dies then replace that too.

The Ehiem is left over form the 55g I use to have so just decided to use it. Also to make sure it works good for the 75g. Which today I found it leaked probably from not being used so I ordered all new gaskets, rings and o-ring. I figured to replace all of them. Found them pretty cheap too.

The LFS only had eco red or fluval. I planned on eco but wanted black so figure id give the fluval a try.
