Help me with my setup

Hi guys, I plan on setting up my 40 Gallon Breeder this week. Here's my plan having pressurized co2, finnex ray 2 led, and dose seachem flourish every other day. For lights and co2 I plan on leaving them on for 6 hours daily.

Tank:
40 Gallon Breeder
Filter: HOB
Co2: 5lbs canister along with a Aquatek Co2 regulator solenoid system with 6 outlets
Lights: Finnex Ray II 36" DS
Substrate: Eco Complete

As for plants I plan on have a carpet of HC, Stem plants and some mid ground plants.

Am I looking for trouble with this setup?

It looks like you pretty much have everything covered. Just make sure to properly cycle your tank first!

Also, Seachem Flourish alone doesn't contain all the nutrients plants need.

If you got the CO2 set up, you may be good with passing on excel. Doesn't hurt to do both though

I would def make sure you're supplementing all the macros, if you're doing flourish, as Jeremy said.

I just follow the instructions on the bottle. I think there is a primary dosing..... then it's just 5ml a day I think?
