Some thoughts, if you were to slop the gravel up to the sides and back it would look more natural, the anubias should not be planted in the gravel (tie it to a rock), like your moss wall, and general layout. Looks like you have some water stains on the back of the tank which takes away from your back drop. If you clean the glass and then use black electrical tape to hold the back ground to the top of the glass, you will not get any more water stains back there. Good luck.
