Nice job! The tank looks good.

Thanks!

I would like to hear some critiques because this is my second month into this and I'm very interested in hearing responses.

I plan on removing some of the rocks in the middle and placing the driftwood that is currently floating.

Could you brighten the photos a bit in Photoshop or similar so we can see a little better?

Added wisteria and Limnophila aromatica

Changed out smaller HOB for Eheim 2217 and it makes a huge difference!

I really like the layout but your cichlids are going to keep you busy with their excavating. It also looked like one of those cichlids was a mbuna which notoriously are hard on plants due to their vegetarian nature.

They really don't. I have had to change my layout to accommodate them for sure, but after a few months I don't replant uprooted things very often.
