Low Or High Tech??

This will sound so stupid but I just dont know how to catagorize my upcoming tank. It is foing to be a 75 gallon Moderately to heavily planted tank. 320 Penguin Biofilter, Heater, about 210 watts (~2.6 w/g) with soilmaster select as the substrate and DIY co2. IS THIS A LOW OR HIGH TECH SETUP?? and if it is a high tech setup are there any complications I may face??

The lights will make this "high tech". I think you might have a challenge with DIY CO2 for a tank that large. Unless you are extremely dedicated to keeping the sugar-yeast solution at full steam, uh, bubble, it might turn into a "high algae" tank. You could start with less light and see how it goes, and if you can provide sufficiently high CO2 levels, turn it up all the way.
