I recently set up this 5.5 gallon tank, and I'd like some advice on the scape. Is there anything I can do to improve the look? I feel like something's missing or off, but I can't put my finger on it. The background is supposed to be a moss wall but it needs to grow in, it's made of Java moss. I have some crypts, although I'm not entirely sure the type, but I think it's Lucens... I also have some sort of rosette plant, I think a sword, as well as 3 little anubias nana plants on the wood. The lighting is currently just 2 CFL bulbs, 14 and 13 watt. No co2.
I think the centering of the wood is fine due to the shape of it. Once the plants grow in you wont know the wood is centered anyway. I think it looks great and will look forward to seeing the progress.

I tried with some taller plants, but it either ended up looking too symmetrical or too heavy on one side. Do you think it could just be a case of it looking kind of off now, but it'll improve as the moss wall grows in? I think the moss wall might make up for the lack of tall plants. That's the idea, at least.
