Always glad to see another journal starting
I too will throw out a question / suggestion with everyone else
If that is an Amazon Sword plant in the center front I would move it while it's little. Center it more in the tank from front to back and expect it to get pretty AND big when it settles in and starts growing. Placing it more in the center allows it produce the huge center piece plant it will become without crowding the glass.
Guessing I see rainbow fish, cory, and a pleco?
When things settle in I think this tank will look great with the darker substrate.
