Fluval Spec V aquascape journey/journal

Hello. Long time lurker, but i finally decided to post.

Had a couple fail projects - hopefully this one will take off. I feel very good about this one, and hopefully you guys can help me out as well.

Fluorite Substrate and some seiryu stones

java moss and mesh screens. Hopefully that works out into a cool little bush.

Dwarf sag and a longer version? (i dont know what it is)
(dont worry fish wasnt added right away, there has been some time between all these pictures.)

the tank is dusty from planting the dwarf sag.
I know the dwarf sag needs to acclimate and might melt off a bit, but any advice to really help these plants grow?

I dose some excel, flourish, and have put some osmocote plus root tabs.

lighting is a 6500k spectrum cfl bulb. 23ish watts. i know its a bit but ill be playing around with height until its dialed in?

some questions i have would be like: How long lighting period? and I hope the dwarf sag and sag do well.

thanks for all the ideas and info here. Cheers.

I really like the look of this! The lighting is very subtle in a humbling way.
