Don't get too hung up on sculpting sand, it flattens out over time particularly if you have substrate fish rooting about.

I just purchased the Current USA LED+ 36"-48" fixture. Did some research and from what i read it does the job with low-moderate light plants which is what i will plant. got it for $100. Cheapest i was able to find anywhere for that model.

You mentioned that the stock LEDs that come with the units are not good? Does that mean i would have to replace the ones that come with this unit?

Clarification. I meant that come with the off the shelf aquarium kits. The LED fixtures dont typically have user serviceable bulbs so you've got to do your homework to get the right thing the first time.

This canister came with lines that at 3/4". I was looking into an in-line heater but i cannot find one that fits those lines... Anyone know of one?? And yes the canister will be below the tank.

No, 5/8" is the typical size. You could reduce the tube going in and expand it going out with adapters but if you need the 106 gph doing so will reduce the water rate... by how much I am not certain.
