Wondering why do you dose both leaf zone & flourish? I would add 1 ml flourish whenever you do a water change. Without the amanos I think you would have had some algae issues by now.

I would cut the fertz back halfway... based on the look of your tank.

Tank looks nice, but too much fertz in my opinion.

Beware of the amanos, if they don't get enough food, they'll make a snack out of one of it's tankmates.

Is this the look you're going for? I have no idea what kind of moss this is.

Tiny turtle & fish seem to approve of it though. I can take better photos if you want over the weekend, because I want the moss identified.

I wouldn't worry about it spreading all over the place because it grows so slow, you'll remove them whenever you do any routine water changes/siphoning.
