75 gallon up and running (new stock)

Well sort of new. My previous tank was a 50 gallon. Now I've upgraded to a 75 and re-homed the Sarasa Comets I used to have. The new tank has sand as a substrate now. It's fully utilizing two filters: Aquaclear 70 and the Marina S20. The heater has been upgraded to match the tank. I've added two more hide areas and some more plants

Both Gray Bichir are inside but I've added two Yoyo Loach and 1 juvenile Ornate Bichir. I will not be adding any more fish. I do plan to upgrade the lightening next and I contemplate more planting. Comments? Suggestions?
Oh yeah, I do have a video up too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFJNQ...ature=youtu.be

(water significantly cleared up since this shot, I did a minor water change and changed out the carbon filter). Also the tank isn't full all the way because the bichirs do need a gap for air, and one of the bichirs is a bit shorter than the other and I want to ensure he can reach the top for a quick gulp. I will see about getting a better clearer picture soon.

Finally got some okay pictures. I added a second light. The tank still isn't fully lit up but all three species of fish prefer a tank with lower lighting. I need to charge the battery for my better camera so for now a few camera-phone snapshots will do.









Water is crystal clear, wish I were able to delete the first picture in the first post. Next week I will swap the cave out for something better (maybe another log? Or driftwood if I can find a good piece), and add more planting.
