4g Cad Lights iwagami my first planted tank

I have been on every site watched hours of you tube footahe and now im ready for the first full attempt at a fully planned aquarium. I have one now but it happend on accident i got a hand me down fluval and put an anubias in it and some hairgrass and i fell in love with the tank. I am in the office 13 hours a day sometimes and this lil tank changed my moods completely. Additionally i was given a guppy and two mollies and they are my buddies. The guppy gave birth to a fry and produced the most rare fancy tails i have ever seen. I will post pics soon. What i need now is feedback and some past experience with such a small ecosystem. I will run Co2 and attempt a carpet. I am obsessed with the iwagami style tanks and i am arranging the rocks now. Please let me know what you think.

Cad Lights 4g mini
1L refillable Co2 cylinder glass diffuser
Light came with my tank
Substrate: Ecocomplete for slope covered in Amazonia.

Any suggestions on the layout?

P.S. i need positive criticism not haters

JK, I'm glad you started this. Been looking at the Cadlights 4g for my office and haven't seen many used. What color spectrum is the light? I thought I remember it being around 10k or something. I like the scape.

Sorry I don't have any real input, I've never tried a pico planted tank.

Edit: After looking again, would you want to move the large rock just a hair away from the glass so you can get in there and clean if needed?

Edit X2: What are your plans for a heater? That's one thing I've been worried about.
