There is no danger of the planterd exerting pressure on the glass. They don't weigh much and they weigh even less underwater.
The Mr. Aqua 11.4G is a real nice size and shape for this kind of setup. I like it with the water level lowered to a few inches below the top rim. This improves the proportions and it will also help to prevent fish from jumping out.
