Looks awesome. a couple comments:
- get 1 pair of rams, and if you want another cichlid with them, consider 1 or a pair of Thomasi or something similar.
- get only 1 BN plec. Even in very large, heavily planted tanks the weaker one will often get killed by the stronger one.
- your equipment looks good; don't bother with any carbon in the filter (not sure if you use any normally)
- wait a bit before dosing with ferts, otherwise algae will take over if the plants aren't established first. Make sure you start with some fast-growers like hygro to beat out the algae. If you're patient enough, wait a full month with plants-only before adding any fish (personally, I never am patient enough to do this, and always regret it!)
