Ada 60f first timer. Suggestions welcome!

I have been gathering up items for this tank for months now. Just looking for help and advice. Items I have or will have in next coming weeks.
*Ada 60f tank on an ikea stand.
*Finnex ray 2 30" on a day conduit hanger
*2 3ltr bags of ada amazonia powder (might need more?)
*10 lbs of ada seiryu stone
*Paintball tank with co2art regulator and paintball adaptor
*Co2art nano lily pipes
*Ada pollen type 3 diffuser
*ada glass beetle counter
*in line 3w uv sterilizer
*in line hydor 200w heater
*ada bacter 100
*aquavitro fertilizer line

I think that's it so far. Trying to pick up a Marineland canister filter on black Friday from petsmart for half off. Maybe just end up getting an eheim on amazon instead tho. Am I good as fat as delimiters go? Should I get others to put in substrate? Plan ING on growing maybe some glosso or hc, dwarf hair grass. Just looking for thoughts. Also trying to see what height my light should be at least at a starting point before I have to adjust the height after watching tank for a while once it's up and running. Thanks for any input and wish me luck!

welcome to the 60F club. :-)
The stuff you get is good.
I would go for it other then the sterilizer...
I do not think you would need that.
Also, I heard the Finnex Ray 2 light are super bright.
to an shallow tank like 60F you might wanna hang the light abit higher.

Hope it helps.
