Draw the CFT diagram for [Ni(H2O)6]2+....(NO LINKS STRICTLY)!!!

Dear student

[Ni(H2O)6]2+ is an octahedral complex, where Ni is present in the +2 state
i.e the ground state configuration of Ni is 3d84s2, but here 
Excited state configuration, Ni2+ = 3d8
Now these 8d electrons get distributed into t2g and eg levels. t2g level comprises of the dxy, dyz, dzx orbitals and eg consists of dx2-y2, dz2
The Splitting takes place as follows:

First the t2g is filled followed by filling of the eg level. Here , as water is a weak field ligand, a high spin complex will be formed, forcing the remaining two electrons [left after filling the t2g shell, ] to occupy eg .
The CFT is shown below:
