20 gallon high, My first jurnal

I just redid my 20 tall.
Plants-
Fore ground: crypts, microswords
mid ground: drift wood with java fern java moss to be added, and a bannana plant off to the side
rear: 2 amazon swords, bacopa carolina, red tigre lotus, apongeton, and wysteria
most of this needs to grow in before it could fill in
the back feels empty to me.
Fish- 2 syamease flying fox
fertalizer- micros every sunday and flourish tabs
light- 2 cfls and one t8
substrate- gravel, dirt, and sand
filter- an old bio wheel

so I need some suggestions on plants and scape and fish, where to get them at a good price and advice for a begginer.

I move the wood to the end and towards the front at an angle. Move the anubias to the right. Put a tall plant behind the wood, like Hygro diformis. Thus creating a triangle slope like this


Are you injecting Co2? For the plants you have it is not necessary.
