Very nice driftwood! I admire your patience with not wanting to add fish to get the hang of keeping plants.

I think your lighting puts you in the low range which means your tank is going to have too many excess nutrients before the water change which will most likely result in algae. You may want to use 23W bulbs (I've used them in a stock 10) or consider going low tech. If you have the money you can get a finnex LED fixture or an AquaticLife 20" 2x18W T5 fixture ( I have this fixture over a 10 but need to put some window screen over it because its super bright and algae is killing me - see my avatar). I think your plant list is great!
