10G Start to Finish

Just talked the wife in to letting me take over her new 10G tank and plant it. Just now starting to cycle so it will be a while before it's up and active, but never a better time to start planning. As it sits, it has a base of CaribSea white sand and one of my small roots from my 55 hex. Decided to throw one of the baby swords out of my 55 in just for a little color. I know the light is nowhere near sufficient but I have so many sword babies I've been throwing them away. This tank will likely turn into a guppy tank and will break the definition of heavily planted. Planning on a 3-5 WPG setup with CO2. Well here's the start and the plans for planting. Again, the tank has only been up and running for about 48 hrs. Bought it originally as a backup hospital tank and don't need it so gave it to the wife to pick the fishies and let me handle the plants.

And to help decipher my random color drawing. Obviously I won't fill the ENTIRE space with plants, just did it for general ideas of placement.
