Jenn's 50G Micro Tank

I have decided to downsize my reef which has given me room to setup a 50 gallon tank, which will be used to house my "mirco fish". Here is what the plan is so far.

50G SeaClear(36Lx15Wx20H)
2xFluval 205
Current Nova 2x39watt HOT5
2xbags Flourite black sand
1 bag Caribsea Tahitian Moon

Here is a diagram I made of how I think I would like to scape the tank:


I will be going with Chili Rasbora, Dwarf Zebra Hovering Loaches, Nerites and Otos...I may also do some Scarlet Badis

Do you all think the 2x39watt will be enough light for the hairgrass? I will also be doing pressurized injection. Would a larger ceramic diffuser be adequate?

3x75 gallons|2x55 gallons|2x50 gallons|3x40 gallons|1x29 gallon|1x10 gallon

I got some of my supplies in. I got my metal tank stand from Drs F&S. I had to go for the 36x18" version...I will be doing a top for it with 3/4" plywood and I will paint it black. I may also put on some laminate tile to help it match my room a little better. So far I received my filters...wond up going with 1 205 and 1 206 canister. I will be interested to see what the differences are in the models. I also have my Flourite substrate in. The tank is due to arrive on the 7th and the light fixture is due to arrive on the 8th.
