Mr. Aqua 17g rimless build

Well I have decided to take the plunge. I have built a few simple tanks before, but this will be my first planted/scaped tank. So here are the specs and photos to follow:

Flora:
Some assorted Anubias
HC
maybe some dwarf hair grass

Fauna:
few types of shrimp
Otocinclus
12 celestial pearl danios from my other tank
a few snails

Equipment
Eheim 2213
Hydor 200W Heater
20oz. CO2 w/Aquamaxx Nano regulator w/solenoid
GLA Bubble counter
GLA Atomic inline CO2 Diffuser
Aquamagic Glass Lily In/Outflow Pipes
Finnex Ray 2 7000k LED Light
Lava Stone
40lbs Azoo Plant Grower Bed Substrate - Black

And without further delay:



This just a very quick layout idea...any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Well, got most of the plumbing installed, just waiting for lily pipes now. I think I got the final layout that I like.
