*New Pics*My fluval flora..HC, DHG, CO2

Here it is:


I am using DIY CO2 for now and plan on populating this with some form of shrimp. As you can see I removed the foam background and am trying to mimic a cube garden. I intend to put some spiky moss on the driftwood as well...
Oh and im using old Amazonia and power rocks..

Comments?

After nearly a month and a half of running with a few bumps in the road here it is running pretty much on its own. Between the Amano and the 2 nerites I have zero algae issues. In fact I was worried about it so much I put in some algea tabs that have since fuzzed up and look like garbage and they dont seem to want it. I'll never do that.
It has a Azoo CO2 regulator/bottle with ebay knock off ADA style nano diffuser and pollenex beetle counter. 33 watts of light on it.
All parameters are 0. PH 6.21(not much higher coming out of the tap). Light cycle of 12 hours.

3ish months in and I am very happy with how this tank is looking. My baby tears are browning a little bit since Ive removed 10 watts of light, but I am no longer dealing with the mass amount of algea as I was before.
