Can I make two suggestions?
Firstly, the tank looks fantastic. But, I hate to see such a nice tank with all that equipment sticking out like a sore thumb!
Instead of using 2 in tank heaters, try one in-line heater, such as the Hydor ETH 200W or 300W. It sits outside the tank, and runs in-line with the eheim canister.
Also, grab yourself some black spray paint that is designed for plastics, and paint anything you can black, such as the eheim tubes. That would make the tank look like it has much less stuff inside! I use a brand called Krylon Fusion for this purpose.
Another thing, do you really need that HOB as well as a canister? The tank is not too big, has a light fish load, and is fully planted - so I can't imagine you need both the canister and the HOB - getting rid of it would get rid of another element of tubing inside the tank.
Finally, you could tuck your CO2 diffuser in behind those patches of blyxa near the back.
I hope that isn't insulting too you, it really is a gorgeous tank. I just hate...HATE seeing filter and heating elements in my tanks, so i go to great lengths to hide them!
