Freshwater Reef Tank

Howsit, people

I am in the process of two builds, one will be a 14G Reef tank - i have posted in the saltwater section asking for advice - and the other i am writing about now will be a 64 Gallon freshwater tank planted as a "freshwater reef" - i have attached a photo of what i am trying to achieve.

I have some fish in it already, but it is going to get a makeover!

The fish i currently have in it is:
2x hillstream tiger loaches
2x khuli loaches
1x ancistras pleco
1x pleco
2x neon tetra
1x albino cory
1x peppermint cory
2x black neon tetra
1x zebra danio

I am considering adding a piece of driftwood for the pleco's

I have 2x Zetlight 1201 Wifi lights, but i will remove them and use one on the 14G reef tank, and build a gantry with 2x 20W LED 6500K Floodlights for the Freshwater reef tank.

It currently has a Dophin C-1000 canister filter with a TeraQ airpump, i am planning on keeping the Filter but removing the airpump and installing a small wavemaker, and using pool filter sand for substrate.

Any thoughts?

Look into the proper group size of the fish you're considering.
I'm not really here... fell in the tank and my phone is just that smart
