Who You Are: ADA 45-f

Hello all, I would like to introduce my aquarium to you: Who You Are. The tank is named off of the Pearl Jam song "who you are"; the two go well together. It has been about a month and a half since setup; things are going wonderfully. I had no diatoms and I have very little nuisance algae. The tank is very low maintenance, only daily dosings and weekly water changes. All plants have shown healthy, lush growth patterns. I plan to add micro rasboras soon (which I have located at a not so local lfs). Sand will need to be replaced too.

Details-
Aquarium: ADA 45-f
Lighting: DIY rapidled fixture (4 3w crees)
Ferts: DIY Micros and Macros
Co2: excel (daily)
Filter: tom mini internal
Heater: none
Substrate: Flora max, sand
Hardscape: Malaysian driftwood, rock
Flora: Rotala green, Staurogyne repens, Fissedens fontanas
Fauna: Oto

Please leave feedback on my scape!

Thanks guys!
I got all my LED parts from RapidLED.com, I strongly recommend them. Great products, excellent customer service, and quick shipping.
To learn how to make it, I recommend reading up over at nano-reef.com. They have countless threads on DIY Led builds, and many experts on the subject.

I forgot to add in my original post: The water is still yellowed due to tannins, and I expect to have a dense enough Rotala bush in about a month.
