37 gallon, looking for ideas

Hi everyone. I bought a used 37 gallon (30x12x24 inches) aquarium a few months ago, basically on a "ooh, that's a good price" whim and now I'm finally getting the motivation to set it up. I have a few ideas in my head, but I was looking for some other thoughts, mostly not my own , to see what I might be missing.

My well water is consistently 6.5pH, 0KH and less than 3GH, if that matters to you.

For reference, I currently have a 65g set up as Amazonian/blackwater type, medium planted, with angels, apistos, tetras and various cats. I also have a 20L with blue pearl shrimps.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Do a dirt substrate capped with some black sand and then get some tall back ground plants with some rock for the hard scape and then use foreground to get depth, add some colorful fish and your complete have some ludwigua for some color besides green and it should look pretty good
