Amazing set-up! love the natural feel and I would say you checked all boxes with one possible issue. An ideal substrate would be a soft, sandy bottom. Apistogramma species are geophagines, which means they are benthemic substrate eaters. They take up particles of sand in mouth and sift substrate for food. Excess sand gets sifted out of both mouth and gills.

If it was me, I would add a sandy section in front and feed sinking cichlid pellets directly in this area.
