Lol I did the same thing. Only I was too excited to get my tank going that I said effff it and got a little side table for my canister filter. one of these days I'll do an 80% water change and arrange everything correctly. Also as far as your plants go you might want to get alot of fast growing plants ASAP or some duckweed/nutrient suckers bc those poor little anubias plants are going to be covered with algae(that's another mistake I made)
