Beginner 55g aquascape

Hey guys new to the site and thought id join in showing my very newly rescaped 55g Discus tank. In hope to have some feed back of what you guys think of it and see if you have any suggestions that you may have to improve the look of it. There is still a bit of work to be done on it in regards to adding more plants but heres what i have so far.
3 T5 HO 54watt 6500K Bulbs
DIY Co2 2x5L Jugs
DIY Powerhead powered Co2 Reactor
Normal gravel (Would like to add Flourite or eco-complete to it if Id be better off?)
Here it is.

I have a problem with finding a good spot for the DIY Co2 reactor in the left hand corner which is interfering with the filter output. I think I may transfer it to the right side behind the wisteria under the other powerhead used for circulation on the right side.
Still not sure if i want to arrange the right hand corner a bit by spreading out the pogo infront of the Red Myro? Instead of next to it which is bunching it up to much or bring it all to the left side and leaving the right open for only foreground plants which may open the tank up more.
If i dont transfer the right to the left any suggestions for plants that could go well in the left hand corner around the filter output and if the is any other way to get the output out of the way while still producing good circulation?
Im sorry if I sound really inexperienced Im still learning. lol

I hate that your 55 looks so good. (By the way, that's a weird compliment.) I would definitely add some more substrate like eco or flourite. You will be able to grow more plants in the future that way. Welcome to the Planted Tank!
