Nice! I would suggest banking up the substrate towards the back and higher on one corner as this gives good depth to the tank. You could add more substrate if you have it or just use what you have to make a nice bank. Also maybe lay the stones down (not fully horizontal, sort of slanted?) so they take up some more space in the design. A few more stones might help do the trick!

Thanks! I do have some substrate left and I like that idea! Its already slightly banked but could be hard to see in the pic. I plan to go rock shopping this weekend along with any other suggestions given as to what it needs

Not sure of your budget, but there are some good seiryu and ohko stones for sale here! They have great texture that goes well with a nice lush carpet (dwarf hairgrass (eleocharis sp. mini) is my favorite for carpeting but that's just my opinion). Micranthemum monte carlo is another good option, check em out!
