Definitely off to a nice start. Only thing I'd do is add a dark/black background.

One thing that you can do to make the grass spread a bit better is break it up into smaller portions. Then plant it in an alternating grid pattern.

For filter: Consider Aquaclear 20. The AC20 has adjustable flow and you can easily stick a pre-filter sponge over the intake to prevent small fish or shrimp from getting sucked up. Has lots of space for filter media and is even large enough to run a package of Purigen or other media if it's ever needed. They don't cost much more than cheap-o small filters you can get on Amazon.

A heater may not be necessary depending upon what you keep. If you want fish, then I'm guessing it could be necessary. But if you're going only for shrimp (less maintenance, only feeding a couple times per week, can kinda be neglected)? Then they'll be fine in really cool temperatures.

Will you be attaching anything to the wood?
