First Planted Tank: Fluval Spec III

So this is my first planted tank! I've done lots of reading over the past couple months but I feel like there's still tons of info I'll need to learn until i can put together a really nicely scaped tank.

I'd definitely love some criticism/tips on how I can improve my current setup.

All the components of the tank are stock as of right now. I was wondering what everyone's opinion would be on a light upgrade as well as adding a small co2 system?

-Sea Chem Fluorite Black (when i redo the tank I'd like to go with something finer)
-Art Rock Natural Sand

- Manzanita driftwood

- Xmas moss
- Dwarf hairgrass
- Marimo moss ball

- 3 Neon tetras

- Sea chem flourish tabs

Future Plans:
-Upgraded light (not sure which one yet)
-Possibly a co2 system
-another small plant(still deciding)
-Red Cherry Shrimp
-Celestial Pearl Danios (if i end up losing the tetras)

Only photo I have of the setup:

Some photos from today/yesterday:

I'll be adding more updates within the next week or so

I think a bigger rock pile adding not only more but different sizes will help it not seem as forced. Also consider clipping the top part the stick that curves up.
