Am i ready?

hi bros and sis,

i would buy the stuffs to start my own planted aquarium this sunday. (soon shd be a more appropriate word to use cos i still need guidance). My tank is 60cm height, 35cm width and 45cm in height.
plan to get this stuffs from NA (my local fish shop):

1. 2x36W PL lite
2. CO2 System set (either 3L or 5L, but i think 3L is sufficient enough) prefer to use diffuser type, is it good?
3. Ada Amazonia soil
4. cannister filter (dunno must see NA have what to offer), i saw a cannister filter brand name matrix from another store

things i have bought:

1. Oyama Black paper
2. Jebo fan set ( 2 fans)

my questions is... i want to keep riccia. any important things to note (like wat type of other nutrient shd i need to add in my water). knowing tat its a floting plant and need to be tied down.( i also know it needs to be trim regularly) anything else before i jump the wagon? thanks all.

Well good for you, are you solely going to plant with Riccia, I see you've got enough lighting, perhaps with CO2 reactor, make sure you have plenty of water movement to create turbulence on the surface. You'll defintely need macro and micro daily. Eventhough you are using CO2.

I've wish I can spare some Riccia but I've just switched 20 my 20 gallon. I am using ADA, aquasoil and power sand. Glass inflow/outflow with Eheim 2214 Pro, 110 JBJ CF
