First 10 Gallon Build

Hey everyone, this is my first tank journal. I would appreciate any input from everyone.
I am just waiting for my Fugeray to come in the mail. I plan on using MGOCPM with a black diamond cap. For planted i would like to grow a nice carpet of dwarf hairgrass. I would also like a nice driftwood or rock centerpeice. Would that be possible with the FugeRay as my lighting.

I'm not real familiar with the fugeray, but it says its only 10W total power, so I'd be hesitant on how good of a light its going to be... I'm more familiar with lighting reef tanks in which case I wouldn't recommend it, but plants are slightly different so it might be OK... 10W I think is going to be pretty low light, so not sure whats going to grow...

I'm starting a 10gal right now too, I redid it a bit last night trying to make it a little better looking but still not real happy with it... reading today about iwagami so thinking I'm going to scrap the driftwood because after trying a couple different pieces I'm not very happy with them (too big for such a small tank), and go with an iwagami set up with 3 statement rocks and plant around them... I have some nice river rocks that I've collected from the creek next to my house that should make a decent look...

also, it was suggested to me to avoid the DHG in a 10 gal unless you plan on doing a lot of trimming... I want a low maintenance tank that I don't have to trim a lot, DHG gets tall so needs trimmed.
