Thanks for the comments guys . So here is a update
I did a huge water change to clear out some of the powder green algae after the initial cycle . The tank looks pretty clean now
I added 20 celebs rainbows, 40ish galaxy rainbows , 7 cories, and 2 peacocks , I had 3 but the female got stuck in the net and i didn't see it when transferring , so it died . Booo, and lots of endless ( which I have tons of if anyone is looking )
I added the trail of mini gravel but I might take some out to add a sand blend . I find the mini gravel is still too big . But one thing was for sure , for this scape it was important to add the trail last in order to avoid crap all over it . I would do it again in the future .
In regard the finnex 24x7 light . I don't like the 24/7 option . I think it produces more algae , waste energy and eventually will burn the bulbs out quicker . I feel the transformer and it's hot even at night
Here are some pics
