Garf's Putah Creek Natural 10 Gallon

Dear planted-tankers,
I recently got my hands on a few Crayfish, Rock fish and a Belostomatide. I got some floating plants which I cannot keep rooted with the Crayfish always ripping it up. I have a cheapo led light running when the tank is in shade and there is a sponge filter running constantly to keep the water clear and oxygenated. I have a few time lapse videos that I will post the links for, since that gives a better idea of the tank versus the simple picture which I took by accident. Tell me what you think. I think I could add some grasses ans maybe a mud spot for the rock fish because they won't eat either the blood worms or the algae pellets. I have a few dragonfly nymphs and will get some feeder guppies for the Belostomatide.

Here is one of the first time lapse video, taken at 10 second intervals. Sorry about the low light, taken later in the day.

Here is the second time lapse video of the tank from a different view, with better light, where you can see my Crayfish pulling up all my plants and moving them around. I think I will put more substrate in there to bury the roots and promote growth.

I took this video this morning showing some checking, a little murky after a dose of feeder organisms, and small dragonfly, damselfly larvae for the rock fish to eat. I am still working on identifying all the native species in the tank and will update the original post when I figure it out, as well as the equipment. I think I will take some pictures of the inhabitants for the timeline as well.
