Yep it looks alright to me. Since it does contain peat moss you may see your water pH lowered compared to straight out of the tap, but it won't be drastic. You'll definitely need a sand cap as well.

It'll be a few weeks before that happens. I plan on getting the tank on the 26th when big als has their big boxing day sale.
