Nanocube 12 minimal planted GloFish setup

Hi all,

I'm a newbie to this forum but have been in the aquarium hobby for a good 15 years now. We have had some changes at home which didnt leave me a whole lot of time to keep on my 5 year old NC 12 saltwater setup, so I ended up breaking it down and putting it in storage the past year. Anyway I had a little free time finally, so I wanted a simple freshwater setup and thought a planted tank with 6 Tetra GloFish would be fun for the house.

The tank is monitored by a ReefKeeper Lite and modified with a ceramic bio ball filled media basket in chamber 1, MJ 900 pump upgrade, and the NanoCustoms LED retrofit which is a moderate lighting setup that worked well for all corals except LPS/SPS. I hope its decent for the two plants I have in there at the moment, which are the Anubias nana on Driftwood, and Dwarf Sagittaria. I'm not going to have a C02 setup for this and was planning on using the liquid SeaChem supplements for those requirements, and the substrate is CaribSea Eco-Complete.

Is there anything I need to look out for with these two plants? I had a 50 gallon freshwater for many years, but never had live plants in it.

Right now I'm in the middle of a fish-less cycle but here are the current pics below.

The blue large stones in there are from this company and are supposed to be non toxic and tank/pond safe. They actually glow once all the lights are turned off after soaking in the LED lights all day. Hopefully it complements the GloFish when I stock the tank.
