First Planted Tank Fluval Spec

Hello all. I've been reading a lot of information about planted aquariums and this site has much to offer. I certainly appreciate it.

I started on my very first journey of a planted tank. This is my first time with plants and am very excited. I have the Fluval Spec on my desk at the office. This is the scape I made. It is from dry base rock. I read it raises PH and H2O hardness. I will be actively keeping tabs while the tank cycles and will make the call of any other livestock based on that.

What do ya'll think? I would greatly appreciate any advise or concerns.

Thank you all for your insightful contributions. I will post better pics when I clean off the micro-bubbles attached to glass.

Keep up the fine work.

Is that a toy helicopter in the tank? Neat idea, but keep in mind that certain paints and definitely metal parts can leach chemicals that can kill livestock Hopefully it's all non-painted plastic and won't leach anything.
