Default Low Tech Dirted 26g bowfront "Cave into Darkness" *Updated 3/6 Pg 4*

Hey guys. This is my first planted tank, and first tank in general, so I'm excited because of how much this tank has evolved and how much improvement I can still make. It still needs a few more plants, but overall I think it looks pretty good finally after dirting it a couple months ago.

Please tell me what I can do better

-Narrow leaf ludwigia
-Amazon sword
-dwarf sag
-rotala indica i think
-crypt wendtii green
-limnophila sessilfloria
-trident java fern
-anubias nana
-hygrophila difformis
-hygrophila tiger

-5 pristella tetra
-5 bloodfin tetra
-5 amano shrimp
-2 otos
-pair of GBR
-10 rummynose tetra

Substrate and fertilizers:
-MGOPM capped with plain old black gravel
-Ocasional dose of flourish comprehensive and iron

-Coralife T5 NO 28 watt fixture
-fluval 206
-aqueon 100w heater
-no co2
