First update:

I got the standard ammonia spike from the ada soil, which is fine cus the plants love it and it helps to start the cycle.
The filter had been running for 2 weeks on my main tank so will have already had some bacteria (hopefully)
I will be adding some fish in the next few days, I still have not decided so any suggestions are welcome!
I want just 1 species of fish (small) and a clean up crew which I will add once the algee attack comes.

These pictures were taken 1 week after fill up and planted.
I have trimmed the plants which i will do weekly untill i see lots of runners.
As you can see the plants are taking well and there is lots of growth.

Any feedback is welcome.
