46 glow bow - simple and low tech

I took a long hiatus from the hobby to finish grad school and start a family. Things have settled down and I have my finances are in order so I decided I upgrade my 6 year old 12 gallon long that was very neglected to shiney new 46g bowfront. I saw this ensemble at petsmart a few months ago and fell in love with it. Waited for it to go on sale and snagged it!

Equipment:
Marineland C360 canister
Finnex 24/7 planted+ light

Substrate: pool filter sand

Deco: background, rocks and stump are by universal rocks.
I decided to go this route becase in the past finding the right peice of driftwood has always been a nightmare and I don't like the tannin stained water look. Finding good rocks in my area is also difficult. Maybe this is considered "cheating" but I'm very happy with how it looks.

Plants:
Amazon sword
Anubias nana

It's been set up for about 2 weeks now and is cycling. Occupants are a couple Nerite snails and one red eye tetra that refuses to die (had him for about 10 years)

Thanks for looking!
