I like it and I bet your pike cichlid does too. Lots of places to lurk and thickets that prey might be hiding in to check out. The thickets of stems are very nice looking.
Maybe look through the pictures here in Your Tanks and the online photos of scaping contest to see what you wish your tank looked like, then use that shape and your plants to change it up.
Pick out the damaged leaves and wipe down the glass and have a good look at it then.
