its a good start, theres a few things i must add: 1. Upgrade the lighting, i noticed that one of the Anacharis in front bottom part of the stem has turned yellow. :/ Also, i would take out the airstone that you have for the sake of the plants.

Not a good idea. He doesn't have any CO2. So, the airstone is keeping small levels of dissolved CO2 in his water at all times. Leave it in for now.
