65gal discus breeding tank rebuild/rescaping

Hi all. So my favorite LFS had a sale today. 50% off everything, more on somethings. So i bought 3-400$ worth of plants and equipment for 105$. Truly awsome. Ive got new plants and driftwood. So lets rescape. Input is always appreciated.

Tank has 2 aquaclear110 H.O.B. filters. 300 w finnex titanium heater. And a quad t5 ho lighting system. So i have bought many new plants and a new big peice of driftwood. Ive been soaking the wood for 48 hrs now and am confident its ready to go.

I use fine grain white gravel. Its good for discus since they are slow/ lazy eaters. They like to shoot a stream of air/water at the food on the floor to kick it up to eat it. It keeps that food ever present to them. No slipping through the cracks! Plus my assasin snails love ,it too. They breed like crazy in there.

I use only lighting for the plants. No ferts, or co2. I dont want my water perameters to be for anything other than discus breeding. So for this i use a 4 bulb t5 ho setup. 2 bulbs daylight, 2 true red bulbs, 49watts each bulb. It also has 12 led, actinic blue moonlight bulbs.
