The bowls are really nice looking but I think that the design would distract from what is placed inside.

If they had a bowl with just a colored rim, that would be much better IMO

I agree, use RO water to lower kH and gH. Then you can use CO2 injection to lower and maintain your pH to the acidic side.

The java fern would be ok. I'd keep it and just add some dwarf anubias on the rocks.

I have a Leland regulator too but looking for a silonoid to attach to it. What kind and where did you get yours. And how will you be hooking it?

Love the setup. It gives the Mini-M an appearance of a larger aquarium. What needs to be done is to get some color in there.

Rotala Colorata or even some Didiplis Diandra will be nice.

Looks great!!! Looks like you also added some Anubias. These should be attached to some rock or wood and not planted directly into the substrate.

Also the moss can be trimmed with scissors.
