New Tank Setup- "RED"

wondering if I can be successful setting up a mostly "red" tank with the following equipment.
11" gallon rimless tank
ehiem 2213 filter- flow turned down
finnex ray 2
#5 CO2 setup
dry ferts

I would like to eventually get taller plant and use this for a dwarf puffer tank
any suggestions and help would be great especially on the equipment. All I have now is the tanks, CO2 and fert.
Still looking at filter and lighting.

2213 is a great filter for my 10g and its at about half of the flow. If your gonna have mostly red plants your gonna want a good light. My red luswigia is under 2 t5ho and it loses the nice red color on the bottom after it gets shaded. Some other plants could be blyxa or rotala wallichi
