My New Tank Layout! 3D Background + Rock + Few Plants!

ive attached some pictures of my new tank layout! i sold my phone to make my tank look more natural. i bought a rock 3d background, 20Kg dragon rock, and some java fern. im still waiting for a few more plants, they are on a trial basis as most people say cichlids and plants dont mix. anyways here some picture of the tank and the fish. tell me what you think.

thanks

Here is some pictures of my Cichlid fry tank, currently filled with arround 100+ Cichlid fry, 19 OB Peacock Fry and 16 Yellow Lab Fry.


Oh yeah i put the pictures of my fry tank on here is because i just got my new filter and led lighting system.

Photos dont really show how good the lighting system really is.

Except for the Clown Loaches looking out of place, your tank looks great
All your fish look very healthy.
