Woahhhh.
I want to do something like this in the near future. That looks amazing. Just one question: Why do you have a current maker in there? Lake Malawi doesn't really experience currents, and you already have a canister filter in there(which should provide enough aquarium circulation). I could be seeing it wrong, but the thing on the glass on the left side looks like a current/wave maker or something along those lines.

The wave maker has detritus make its way to the filter. And imo having peacock and hap tanks and mbuna both before they all appreciate a little extra flow. :)
Also provides good aeration for a ph buffer.

Great set up!

My suggestion is to add a black background. Cheap addition but it will transform it.

I was thinking about that ONLY cause of the window. But luckily since fish don't require light. I use the light minimally and the curtains have been keeping algae at bay since the start.

A background can also provide an effect like a rockshelf - like many of them would experience in the wild - it gives them structure and cover, and may make the fish more bold. Aesthetically, I like it cause it hides unsightly lines, but that is purely subjective.

I'm with you on the wavemaker. It keeps the water nice and circulated/oxygenated and hopefully helps move the waste to the filter.
