NUVO Black 25 Gallon Build - 24x20x12

I'm new to planted tanks, I have had various tanks over the years ranging from Bettas to cichlids to a saltwater nano reef.

I've been following threads and info on PlantedTank for 5-10 years on and off and am finally making the jump.

The following has been ordered and being delivered over the next few days...

Tank: Nuvo Black 25 Gallon (23.6"x19.68"x11.8")

Stand: IM APS Cabinet Stand - Black

Canister Filter: EHEIM 2215 w/Spray Bar

Heater: Hydor Inline Heater 200w

Light: Kessil Tuna Sun A80 w/Gooseneck, may add a 2nd one.

Substrate: Black Crush Lava Gravel, UNS Controsoil Black (Normal, Fine & Extra Fine)

Driftwood: Spiderwood (Small & Medium) from Buce Plant, Hornwood, Slim Wood & Branch Wood from AFA

Rock: Black Mountain Seiryu Stone (Large and Small Pieces)

Sand: Buce Plant Natural Sand

Scape Style: Nature Style

CO2: Still undecided. This tank will be low light but I've heard good things about low light with co2.

Fish: may need some help here adjusting this list...

(1) Centerpiece Fish - Undecided, Wanted a GBR but temperature requirement was too high for the rest of the stocking

(7) Celestial Pearl Danio

(5) Amano Shrimp

(15) Cherry Shrimp

(5) Oto Catfish

(6) Pygmy Cory

I'd like to add one more group of a smaller tetra/rasbora, I am stuck on the following types...

Espe's Rasboras, Ember Fire Tetra, Rummynose Tetra

Plants: may need some help here as well...

Java Moss
Anubias barteri v. nana
Anubias barteri v. nana golden
Undecided on Carpet, might just use sand with rock edging

Mid Ground:
Dwarf Saggitaria
Pygmy Chain Sword

Back Ground:
Amazon Sword
Java Fern
Crypto Wendtii

Pictures to follow after I receive all equipment & begin the build.
