(*sigh* I just lost my entire post... here goes again...)

First off- welcome to TPT!

Sounds to me like you've done your homework well- you have a very good start for a nice low tech tank.

Which Flourish do you have? (Seachem's labelling is misleading, but "Flourish" is actually the name for their whole line of ferts.)

If you don't have a bottle of Excel, I would recommend that- it's great for plants and also will kill many of the algaes that are common to pop up during new tank setups.

Some root tabs would be good for your swords.

You may not need much else at first in terms of ferts, nutrient demand is not as high under lower light levels.
