Looks pretty good for being out of the hobby for twelve years, neighbor! I would suggest using some Marselia minuta for the foreground...it can do well without pressurized CO2. The addition of Excel will not only supply a good source of carbon for your plants, it will help keep algae at bay. I would like to see what the stones look like....it can't hurt, and adding them later will be difficult if you already have a planted foreground!
You should check out TankOutlaws.com when you have a chance. A lot of hobbyists local our area are on there.
Thanks for sharing, and welcome back to the hobby!!
