Welcome! I've had my Chi up and running for about 5 years now. I got rid of the stock light and filter after the first week, and it was the best thing I have ever done for the tank. I will say this, the tall square shape makes it a little more of a challenge to scape with all that vertical space, but they can look really great. For the last four years I ran a Finnex Epcoh 26w PC fixture and an Aquaclear 20, and in the last 6 months I switched out to a TruAqua Type-P LED and a Red Devil Canister filter. I've always gone towards the higher side of light output due to the depth, but I think that a Planted +R will do great as well (I have one on the 3g picotope next to it). It looks like you've got a great start, and I can't wait to see what you do with your Chi. I've included a couple of pictures of how mine is currently running. Good luck!
