My daughter took a clearer picture for me. The water has cleared nicely and the rhombo barbs and sidthimunki are swimming around like crazy, even schooling together at times. The Congo tetras are being shy, but it seems to take them a day or 2 to adjust each time I have made a change.

I am going to give they plants 7-10 days to settle in and then I will do some trimming- mostly the vals- to remove dead/damaged leaves. Both species of Nesea arrived bent, and I could not un-bend them without breaking the stems. I am hoping the will straighten up in the tank and grow some roots and then I can be more delicate with their placement.
