My 75 gal Amazonian Tank

Hey everyone... I finally got (one of) my dream aquarium which is a 75 gallon tank for my birthday about a month ago. I had my dad build a stand for me, so I've been waiting on that before I could build the tank. It's been up for a little less than a week.

I'm waiting on a few more plants, and will be adding more fish, but here's the plan:

Flora:

Echinodorus Bleheri
Echinodorus angustifolia Vesuvius
Echinodorus "Ozelot"
Echinodorus Kleiner Prinz
Echinoforus Parviflorus
Echinoforus martii
Helanthium tenellum
Hydrocotyle leucocephala

Fauna:

Paracheirodon axelrodi
Hyphessobrycon amandae
Hyphessobrycon rosaceus
Gasteropelecus Sternicla
Nannostomus eques
Ancistrus
Corydoras (julii? Not sure yet..)
May also get some Nannoatomus Espei
**the baby angelfish in the breeder box is moving to it's own tank in a couple days

Equipment, etc:

Eheim 2215 filter
Sponge filter (will probably be removed once the tank is established)
Two heaters, one 125 watt and one 200 watt
Tahitian Moon Sand Substrate
Oscomote + Root tabs
Flourish Comp for a liquid feet
2x Current USA Freshwater + LED lights.
Driftwood are cypress knees
