Welcome to APC!

That's a very nice looking aquarium, even though I don't usually like seeing the water with that brownish colored water. What lighting are you using?

Looks like a nice start. Pretty fish. I wouldn't worry too much about the water color. As long as plants are growing, that's all that matters!

Form your video it looks like you may have more water movement than is usually used with an El Natural tank. You may want to see if you can reduce the flow from the filter pump.

does the moovement have negative impact? because the catfishes need higher surface moovment

Flow is fine in a el natural tank. My only concern is the long fin betta. They tend to don't do too well with constant strong flow. Maybe point the flow into a corner.
