First Aquascape, Opinions?

This is my first planted tank, I wanted to get some opinions on the aquascape.

I have already decided to move the anubais on the driftwood, but any other suggestions would be great.

The only thing i would do would be to move the anubias to the bottom right of the drift wood but you already said you are doing that

I think this is going to look great once it starts to fill in a bit so good job!

Looks like you just got to give it a bit of patience then go from there. You did everything right as far as planting the taller plants in the back and shorter ones in the front to prevent obstructing the view and you've got yourself a nice piece of driftwood as well with a lot of character. Once the hc? grows more it'll look better.

Here's what I ended up with after moving a few things around and letting it grow in for a few weeks.

Nice job. Now I'd look into getting a background for the tank, which will really pull things together.
