Just set this up last week. It currently has 1M and 2F albino Ancistrus sp. 3. I plan on getting 5-7 multis soon. I also am waiting on some plants.

The plecos are already breeding...surprise surprise.

The Styrofoam blocks have since been removed and replaced with a glass top.

Specs:
Aquaclear 70
Visitherm Stealth Heater
Single tube flourescent (for now)
Marineland powerhead
Whisper air pump (One outlet into a two outlet control valve into a flexible bubble wand)

Fish:
1M 2F albino Ancistrus sp. 3

Substrate:
Sahara sand

Not sure I seen that substrate before, looks nice. The heater you mentioned was recalled, they were overheating and breaking in tanks. Here is a link to the recall notice http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2011/Aquarium-Heaters-Recalled-by-United-Pet-Group-Due-to-Fire-and-Laceration-Hazards/
