My redecorated (and cycled!!!!) tank

I recently redecorated my 27 gallon aquarium in a zen garden style after it had completely cycled, I got a few new guppies from my lfs and a few fry have appeared (and are doing fine) also I purchased 4 corys, I have forgotten their specific name so any help would be appreciated! See what you think:

One of the most original tanks I have ever seen. Love it!

Great job on the tank. I love the gravel colors. They make the reds on your fishies pop :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Good job indeed!

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

I think your powerhead may be a little strong for your fish.
It was hard to see a good picture of your cories. But im pretty sure they are peppered cories, not panda.

Thank you all so much for your kind words! I will upload in-depth photos of the tank and materials etc, and get a few closeups of the cory's. They're definitely not panda's, because there the ones I turned down in favour of these guys!

Thank you for your concern, its actually a small filter temporarily doing an air pumps job (adding oxygen) until I get my pump! If I turn it down, I find that not enough oxygen gets in!

Here are a few pictures of the aquarium and its unidentified inhabitants!
First image is of the wire arrangement I have in place to hold the bamboo roughly in position (once soaked in boiling water for an hour, they will have lost most of their boyancy), then varius other images, ie. of the corys and of the 3D vivarium background that I have left over from my old viv.
