yup its rosa, and its def not Cameroon, you can see the Cameroon higher up on the post, I have both and the rosa is super small compared to it . Now that it has been growing in, it looks even better.

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

The tank is slowly growing in . Most of the plants are slow growing. This is something new for me as I am usually setting up super fast growers , pumping co2 to the max and light as well . This is much more difficult to handle lol. In regards to the led, It's good for this tank but I see much better growth and colour with my t5h0 setup . I'm not a huge fan of the finnex for high tech tanks . I wouldn't do it if it was for a Dutch setup . I guess there's a reason why most contest tanks still use t5ho . I would also hang my lights again instead of letting it sit on the tank, the higher Column fish get better lighting and visuals this way . I recently added some mts for the dust alage , More dwarf rainbows , 3 different corys and some dark chocolate shrimps . I also got really into Taiwan bee shrimps again . I turned my moss tank into a shrimp setup . Check out the extreme blue bolts !

looks fannnnntastic. Really cool slope, never seen one that aggressive. I've seen paths with sand but nothing like a sloped path.

Thanks man , I actually bought some Ada sand to cap the small rocks , I like that fine look much better . In regards to the path, I'm not 100 percent set on the shape . I need to create better depth perception by narrowing the path more as the path goes back .

Here's some pics from a few weeks ago . I have moved a few things around so far . I got some staghorn around that time which I nuked and have calmed down . Since then the hair algae kicked in a bit so I added 6x sae, 3x dr fish , 10x Otto , 4x silver fox . Along with that I also added trips of emperor budgeons. I hope the males start showing colour soon . During this time I have also made 5x 15 gallon custom shrimp tanks , 30 gallon shrimp tank and another 10 gallon tiger shrimp tank . It has been busy to say the least . Has anyone else used then 24x7 by finnex ? How do u like it ?
