I do like the overall design.

No, they are all 7000K. There is over 300 LEDs in that monster. (see PAR readings here: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...62#post3010362)

The plants look nice to me, but I probably need to compare it with something else. I used to have 6500K/700K dual daylight power compacts in there but that was at a different abode... the tank does look white (like a 10K CF), but the dark substrate and painted black background make the greens more visible.
The pictures are representative of real life based on my 31 year old eyes (except for the tops of the broad leaves and the shine on the driftwood). I will try to get a representative picture soon.

You know, I actually like what you did with flower pots, I think I will steal the idea for my 75T.

Double substrate is looking good. Did you install a border between them? Keeping them separate can be a PITA.

The pot idea was not original, so steal the stolen, I guess.

Since I don't have a pleco or any bottom dwellers, it has not been a problem yet. Originally, I planned to have rocks separating them, but I couldn't find all of them.
