WOW! Looks fantastic! Great picture. Next time use some plastic to hold the ADA away from the white sand.

Now, my problem is to stop the top soil from flowing on top of the white sand. any suggestion?
I have the outflow moved to the right side, and pointing upward to create more ripple effect. Plus more aeration.

An update after some trimming and water change.

I have change the lighting to Finnex Ray2 LED dual 7000K since Nov 26, 2014.

I have noticed that the plants start pearling within one hour of its usage. Great addiction to this setup.

Also you may notice some algae growth on the rock. I will definitely keep a close watch on this. But I like the natural look of it.

Erios have really flourished.
