Nice improvement.
Maybe it's just me, but I always prefer darker sand to lighter sand...

I always like to see a tank not planted and with decor and then a photo of it planted. It always looks better. Looks like it will be a nice tank.

I have that same little breeding cave and my Green Kribensis did lay their first brood in there but none survived out of only 2 fry that I saw.
