36 Gallon Bowfront In It's Genesis

So after going back to college for 3 1/2 years to finish my bachelors degree I bought myself a graduation gift. I've tinkered with plants in tanks with some success but I'm finally on my way to setting up a nice planted tank.
Plans so far:
Fluval C3 Filter
DIY CO2 (Sort of DIY)
Two dual lamp Aquatic Life T-5 Fixtures (96 watts total)
Miracle Gro Organic Potting Mix
Gravel top
Rocks and Wood - not sure here yet.
Fish - To be determined
Plants - To be determined, thinking of doing a type of biotope.
I've always had a love for the southeast asia fish such as gouramis, so maybe something based on that. My water is fairly hard though.
Read lots of books on plants.
Build a stand. (Woodworking is the other hobby)
Tear down existing 20 gallon tank to make room for this.
Set 20 gallon tank back up somewhere else.

Got a few things to get done but I hope to be back with more pictures down the road when plans become more solid.
