33g with MTS and DIY CO2 (56k warning)

I set up this tank on saturday after being patient almost 3 weeks preparing the MTS.

Size : 30*18*18
Filtration : internal filter in the meantime until I buy a canister filter.
Light : 3 * T5 Daylight 18W 6500k
CO2 : DIY
I'm actually diffusing the CO2 in the air entrance of the internal filter.

Plants :
- Hygrophilia difformis
- Hygrophilia polysperma
- Anubias Nana
- Rotala indica
- Ceratopsis pteroide
- Vallisneria nana
- Alternanthera reineckii roseafolia
- Didiplis diandra
- Lilaeopsis novae-zelandia
- Eleocharis ecicularis
- Cryptocoryne Wendtii

Do you think that I have enough light for these plants???

Fauna :
- 4 wild guppies
- Shrimps from local river



What do you think of the hardscape??

Thanks. I think they are ghost shrimps : I've got 3 types, transparent ones, blueish one (photo) and some reddish ones.

Found out that there are many species of shrimps in Mauritius : Caridina mauritii, Caridina spathulirostris, Caridina brachydactyla, Caridina typus, Caridina serratirostris, Atya pilipes and Caridina richtersi with is the only endemic species of shrimp here.

But unfortunately could not collect much informations about them.
