Am I in the right direction?
 
Hello all!!! :) I am new to the "Planted Tank." I have been n2 aquariums a LONG time but have never done a planted tank. Here is what i have...
Tank = 25 gallon Aqueon
Filter = Aqueon 30
Heater = Aqueon
Substrate = Flourite & Eco-Complete mixed
Co2 = Aquatek regulator mini injection

Is this a good start???

Welcome to TPT.
It's a good start. The only missing piece is light.

2 CoraLite T5 dual bulb fixtures = 2 6700 K & 2 Zoo Med Flora Plant bulbs...

That's a chunk of light, hope you know what you are doing: you are walking a very tight rope, my friend.

The 6700 K r 14W a piece & The Flora bulbs r 24W a piece. Its a 25 gallon tank so that's 3.04W per gallon...
