The tank looks superb! Do you have any issues with the wood in your tank? I tried putting some oak branches into my tank once. I stripped all the bark off and cleaned it with a power hose, but after a couple of weeks the wood started to grow a cloudy fungus in certain areas mainly at the ends and around the knots and where the wood branched off.
I have only had a tiny bit of fungus grow on the end of one branch and that was either eaten by a shrimp or Oto or it fell off. I think the repeated hot water soaking and the soaking in Milton Sterilising solution really helped. I did have to throw some pieces of wood out through that simply disintegrated or smelt awful; they are now in a water butt outside soaking long term for possible future use.
