The only critique that I can give you is to take out the hc and seperate it into single plant and then plant them one at a time, very tedious I know but woth it in the end if that is the effect your going for.

Other then that great start!

Apistogrammas are cichilds and a pair would need at least 15 gallons, heated and filtered.

In 1.3 gallons, I would try some shrimp.
