I think my 50 gallon is complete

Iíve posted here before for suggestions, and after thinking for a while about what I liked and what I didnít, I decided to get a large piece of driftwood for my 50 gallon. Plant wise, I have: Dwarf baby tears, Anubius, Java moss, Madagascar lace plant, Java fern windelov, and what I believe to be Cryptocoryne undulata. Side note: I am not doing CO2 because I have heard stories about shrimp getting killed by it, and I have some blue velvet shrimp. Please feel free to tell me your likes/dislikes, and any suggestions. Thanks in advance

The tank will look even better when moss and fern spreads across the driftwood.
It's hard to tell if you can walk all around the tank. If not, dark background does wonders for depth perception and hiding the equipment.

The tank looks like a 4 footer to me. Is it de-rimmed?

No, it has a rim, itís just dark so you canít see it. Itís a 4 footer too. I was hoping to let all the plants grow in some more and then see if I should add some more after.

I like what you have! It might look kinda cool if you put all the rocks near the start of the driftwood. To add more depth and might make it look a little more natural?
But looks super cool!
I also have heard CO2 kills shrimp. Mine have been doing fine with a DIY setup on my 45g. I run bare minimal though.

I also would add some bigish lava rocks or stone with texture to the right side where the Dw is coming out. I like what you did on the left go give in a slope maybe add a few rocks there as well?

looking real good in the end if you love it that all that matters!
