Great start indeed. Love the driftwood. Are you planning more hardscape or just plants?

I'm already liking it. I didn't realize cubes came that big.

Is that a 28 inch x 28 inch x 28 inch tank? It looks like it is. That has to be the biggest practical size for a cube tank. Any bigger and planting it, pruning it, and cleaning it become very difficult jobs. But, it sure will look great when you get it done. The lighting, if those dimensions are right, is perfect for a high light tank.

That looks good. Although low-light I would watch your lighting duration and keep your water very clean. With little plant mass it's easy to have algae issues with wood reaching so high.

Are you going to add a carpeting plant?

If not, then IMO it needs some rocks or perhaps a few more small pieces of wood to carry out into the left side. Something to "soften" the transition from the tall driftwood on the right and the flatness on the left.
