40 Gallon Project Suggestions please

Homemade stand from oak pallets.

Innovative Marine Black Nuvo Mini 40 Gallon

4 bulb 24" t5 lighting
2x PowerVEG FS+UV
PowerVEG 460
PowerVEG 633

Eheim Pro 4+ 600
Hydor 300w inline
Sera Co2 Flore 500 reactor
8w Advantage inline UV

18L Tropica Soil
9L Tropica Powder

Using RO/DI water, still unsure if I will be adding 50% tap
Dosing NILOCG Thrive+, NA GH booster, and NA MTS capsules

I plan on starting this tank via DSM with a carpet of UG and flame moss (blender/yogurt). Still undecided on the majority of plants. I am torn between dragon, pagoda, or lava rock for the hard scape with the large piece of driftwood in the picture. For livestock I have 2 (male/female) Apistogramma cacatuoides double red I will be moving from my 16 gallon. I would also like a pair of rams but not sure if they will mix.

I am open to suggestions for the hardscape along with livestock options. Hope to keep this journal updated. Thank you!
