I am setting up (or trying to setup) a 69"x20"x20" planted tank.
Am doing this after a 15 year break from my aquarium hobby so am a little rusty.
I have ordered for the following plants:
Please guide me which plants to use and which not to use.
For lighting, I will most likely use T5 tubes as there is less space above this tank's location. I need suggestions as to how many T5's to put in there.
I have bought a Dophin C-1600 canister filter.
For substrate, I intend to use Laterite topped with river sand.
I have some old/new driftwood with me.
Please suggest if i am on the right track

You forgot CO2......go pressurised for such a large tank and add ferts.

You could look at MH as a lighting Option, you would need high light for the plants you have ordered.
And as Preetham has already mentioned you would need a pressurized CO2 Kit and dose ferts for this tank.
