5 gallon CHI New setup


Wanted to post some updated pics of my CHI, it's been awhile and much has changed. I'm going for a natural look, lots of floating plants, moss, and now with endlers. Also set up a Finnex refugium for extra plant mass, bio filtration.

What do you all think?

Equipment:
Filtration: AC20, dual sponge filter, diy sponge filter w/hydor nano powerhead, Finnex HOB refugium.

Lighting: Ecoxxotic Ecopico LED, Finnex Mighty Ray21

Fauna: Endler's (w/non stop endler fry) and lots of MTS.

Flora: Water Wisteria, java moss, subwassertang, some unknown floating
stem, random floaters (frogbit, duckweed)

Here's the best pic I could get (sorry about the water mark on the glass, this is my cat's favorite water bowl):
