Looking good so far, it looks like you've got some moss in the back, a little HC on the right, and DHG in the middle. I'm a newb to so not sure...

You might have too much light if the clamp lamp is resting directly on top of your tank. Also, that amazon sword in the back will get too big for your tank.

What fish are in there?

Thanks a lot guys! I hope it keeps going like this! The plant in the foreground to the right is actually Glossostigma and it grows upward sometimes? As for the light I've been looking for something nicer but I've had no luck, if you know of anything better by all means let me for the fish I'm not sure ingot them at my LFS and they said they would survive without a heater...also have 3 ghost shrimp and 2 are pregnant. You can see the eggs in the stomachs!
