Super Duper handy dandy hi tech 20L. 56k

So the 10 gal is done and gone and now it is a 20L. Here are the first full day running pics. Details:

20 Long tank (Yey Petco for $1 a gallon)
Home made stand
Penguin HOB i think the 10 gallon size (temporarily there till i can get a canister)
Zoomed 501 to help with filtration
150watt Fluval heater
Elite Mini for co2 dispersion
Reef Fanatic regulator
Aquacave needle valve
24oz co2 paingball tank
Fluval bubble counter
3x18watt cfl bulbs in Ikea floor lamp fixtures white reflector (3 inches off surface total of 13 inches off lowest part of substrate. Can be adjusted )
Dirt capped with tahitian moon 60 percent or more already established in the 10 gallon for a month or more.

Fish:
1 rasbora
2 baby mollies

Plants:
From left to right my names for the plants as best as i can remember
#1 - Not sure name - tall with thin leaves purple underneath
#2 - thin leaf anacharis
#3 - narrow leaf sword?
#4 - Cardamine
#5 - crypt parva
#6 - moneywart
#7 - java fern on rocks
#8 - assorted crypt
#9 - red ludwiga
#10 - banana plant
#11 - cardinal plant
#12 - Cardamine

Still adjusting co2 to get green checker.

Not sure if I need more light or less? Maybe someone can offer advice? I think this is solid med light but I'm wrong more often than I am right.

Scape is definitely not set but i wanted to cram as much as i could in there to help cycle the new dirt.

Here are the pics of each plant according to the list up top if anyone can correct me on names i would be super happy!

Of course thank you for helping! And suggestions /opinions are always welcome and considered!

If you have suggestions on changing the scape I'm very interested in that since this is very temporary.

My plan is for this to be a home for apistos (double or tripple reds or orange splash depending on what i can get) a harem maybe 1 or 2 males 3 to 4 females, 5 of the rasboras or small schooling fish (feather fin rainbows are nice or something small to dither for the apistos) suggestions are great for this.

What you think?

New updates :

1. All the cardemine went to the trash and the anacharis got a serious trimming it may get replaced by something nicer a small sword of somekind maybe?

2. Moved the crypt miscellaneous forward and the parva to the 75 as it was being eaten by the chain sword

3. Trimmed the runners of the chain sword and also trimmed and cleaned up the money wart

4. Moved the red stalk thing to the background.

5. Added leaves and my awsome fish auction drift wood wedged a java fern into the wood and got rid of all the rocks.

Fish are growing and the apistos are coming out alot more since more cover was added (leaves and wood)

Fun to watch them.

Can't wait for the swap to see if I can get some cool fish as dithers.

Here are some phone pics...

Couple more tbings... Slowly increasing co2 to find sweet spot.

And raised lights even more and still only using 2 of 3 at 18 watts.

Will take some glamor shots this weekend with the nice camera.
