Please critique my planned layout

The tank is a custom acrylic which is a little smaller than a 120. L42 X W24 X H22. It will be my 1st Hi-tech. Some of the plant choices are based on plants I already have in a few other tanks.

Every pic I talk with my lousy camera just looks like a slight blur on various spots in the tank. I'm doing a few small water changes a day sucking a bit of it out each time.

Anyone else?
