Ares 70L planted. (my show tank hopefully)

hey there so this is my one day competition tank i hope. it is a lil over a year old and is very low tech. so the specs are as follows please feel free to comment

tank specs:

size 70L
2x filters a dolphin and a atwa but cant remember size. the tank is over stocked hence the use of 2 filters.

substrate: palm fibre peat soaked in chemi cult and capped with black sand.

anubias nana
spikey and weeping moss
hair grass

live stock:
1x male betta splendens veiltail.
5x khuli loaches.
8x white clouds.

hard scaping:
a grey granite rock pile which is completely covered in moss
a wood ring also covered in moss and anubias
3 standing stone which arent really visible.

anyway i may be removing the wood and replacing it with another rock pile because it would provide continuity but im not sure, i have one in another tank already with moss and anubias on it just has some crystals which might not look too bad anyway. i'll be taking photos with with the wood and the rock and posting ot get everyones opinions. i recently upped my school of white clouds from 5 to 8 and i was amazed at the way it changed the dynaics of botht the school and the way the tank looks. eventually i hope for the hairgrass to cover the entire front of the tank and its doing well in that respect.

thanks for viewing
