opinions on my setup

I have a 24g aquapod for about 2 years. i got rid of the stock hood because it broke and for about a year i used pretty lame lights with no power at all.
I just bought the ray2 17 inch LED.
i have an emperor 280 filter and the red sea turbo co2 system which i just bought.
Is this ok? any things i could do to make it better? I also dose with liquid co2 as the red sea co2 unit is not making bubbles yet. when it does start working should i stop dosing liquid co2?

Looks pretty good, Pete - I Like it.
What fish stock do you have in there ?
I only see one fish, that looks like a Platy - right ?

its 1 male swordtail and there are 5 small albino cory cats, and 5 cardinal tetras.
I'm thinking of returning the swordtail and geetting something else.
What are some good options?

looks good, the 4 rocks space evenly across the front is a little distracting.

A good center piece fish would be a dwarf gourami. You could increase you school of cardinals or start a school of something else.
