Great job! It really looks great!
I think the "Noah's Aquarium" label is super cute!
With that tank, you might want to consider covering the filter intake with a sponge to avoid his fins being sucked it and shredded... happened to me before I knew better. It will also reduce the current a little which will make your guy even happier.
This sponge fits perfectly onver the intake, you dont even need to tie it up:

I dont really use the filter that much, only after putting new water in i will filter it for about an hour and a half. Im thinking about takeing it out.

I'm absolutely in love with your little gravel "river"! What a cute and creative idea.

Stupid question, how do you clean the tank and not mess up the gravel river?

You don't want to be turning your filter on and off- any bacteria that grows in it, will die when you turn the filter off for a period of time, then be pushed out into the water when you turn it back on. So by you doing that each water change, you're causing the water to become dangerous.

If you go without a filter, unfortunately, you will need to be doing 100% water changes a week in there, so you will mess up your river =( (I believe the person who had done the same thing a while back in the other thread on top has a larger tank with a filter in it so it doesn't need to be taken apart, just siphoned around it.) You can't not do the 100% since you will need to clean out the gravel each week.. and if you do decide to use the filter full time, you will still need to siphon out the gravel. So I would suggest using the filter, and using a small siphon to get as much out as possible without disturbing it too much.
