Working on perm. setup

Welp, the kids are getting a new setup. Everyone has been moved to the 10 gallon temp. while I work on the new dwelling. The silicone is setting. I put a piece of plexi at an angle and fixed rocks to it, picked up some coconut fiber and new water plants (since the taddies pretty much ate the ones I had HA HA) Tomorrow I will finish up. I have it at about 60 land 40 water in a 40 gallon. I'll have about 4 to 5 inches of the coconut fiber with land plants (potho, ficus and some ivy) The ivy will be along the edge of the land with some river rocks to keep the water cleaner. The pothos and ivy is nice and bushy and so is the ficus so there's lots of hiding spots. If need be I'll pick up some of that curved wood bark if they need more hiding spots. The fogger also adds privacy when it's running (usually just in the early am and last pm) I picked up a big old rock that would be perfect for a water fall in front of the filter but I don't think I'll be able to use it. I don't know what kind of stone it is but it seems to make the water kinda mucky. I think I might take it back and find something else.

Does this all sound good so far? Anything else I should add? I'll post a picture of it once I get it set up.

Thanks everyone!
