Nano project started 5-20....

Bought a Fluval Flora planted tank in a box. Upgraded the light to a Finnex 26 clip on unit, changed up the substrate to eco-complete, got a 50w Eheim heater, keeping the og Fluval internal filter and topping it all off with an Azoo Co2 regulator. Planning to put in an HC carpet and hairgrass in the background. Will probably do a dry start. I will be going on a 1 month vacation June, so I am contemplating planting it with 1 inch of water above the substrate and leaving the aquarium to itself for a month, of just wait till I come back. Duhno yet. Any advice on leaving an aquarium to dry start itself?

This is my hardscape. Worked on the rocks with a pick till I got what I wanted. I'm thinking dragon, as represented by the 5 descending peaks of the stones. I'm not sure if I will leave it in the center or put the highest peak to one side and have it descend to the center.



Update to follow, but this is going to take a while
