Thank's for the kind words
I'm definitely going to get more plants, and this is not the final aquascape! Basically I threw some extra plants I had in there, and I have way too much driftwood that I'm still trying to get water logged. The apistos will get some nice caves to hang out in, and there will be some dense stands of vegetation for them to hide in too. Plus with Apisto's I've found it's mostly about having active dither fish that makes them come out. They instinctively cue into their presence as a sign there are no predators around. I'll consider adding some floaters too, but the light doesn't seem like it's too over the top.
