Brand new to this 20L

Hello all, just set up my first planted tank after many hours of lurking/ research/ second guessing myself. Ended up using an Eheim 2213,DIY C02, and a cheap Oddesea dual T5HO fixture. Chacged out the actinic bulb it came with and added another 24W lamp. I run it for 9 hours a day. It sits kind of close to to the substrate I know, but I haven't figured out how to raise it yet. I got lazy and ordered a bunch of random plants on the internet, which I am not sure was a great idea, seeing is I also bought a bunch of baby snails, but its all one big learning experience right?? Anyway, I figured I would introduce myself, as I am sure I will be here asking a ton of questions in the future. Attached are a few pics of the tank about 2 weeks old.

Thanks for your input!!

Bump: Also, what Kind of daily maintenance should I be performing, I am dosing Excel and Flourish, doing my best at a fish-less cycle...should I be doing daily water changes??? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
