Finally starting to set up my new tank pics

I almost have all my equipment so far I have:
Aqueon 72 bow
Aqueon glass tops
Hand built stand
Sun system tech light elite t5 ho 54x4
Coralife 6700k daylight x2
Coralife 10000k daylight
Flora sun 5000k
Rena filstar xp2
Up aqua inline c02 diffuser
Up aqua c02 regulator
C02 bottle I would guess about 4 liters I'm not really sure how to measure it
Hydro 300w inline heater

All I'm waiting on is:
Digital thermometer
Lily pipes

I've started to scape the tank I'm combining my old 55g into this one tank so I'm using the old substrate I don't remember exactly what it is but it works.
I have a couple lace rocks I will be building a sandfall out of, I'm still trying to figure out how to cover the bubbles coming up I'm not sure of I should use plants or fork out the 2 dollars a pound for more lace rock
So far all I have planted is the dwarf baby tears and a couple java ferns
I will be putting 1 albino bristle nose, 1 black ghost knife, and 9 torpedo barbs
I also have a few pieces of wood I may put in as well I'm still deciding

Sorry it's not the greatest pics I'm using an iPhone

Im kind of getting a case of writers block I have no clue what to from here as far as what plants to use

Hey that's a nice start. It looks good so far. I would add more plants for the back. I always found a tank that was fully stocked with plants didn't have problems with algae. Do you use all 4 bulbs?
