Nice tank! Are you going to add more live plants next to your driftwood? You could make the tank look even more natural, haha! :)

Haha... the plan is to get some o2 running in it and cover the substrate with grass.

All right can’t wait to see it then
That might be a bit but will definitely share pictures when I do, I've dumped quite a bit in this tank so far. I'm not even sure how many plants I'd need to cover the substrate fully.

How about add some catfish.
I got two Cory left, they keep dying off. I have a hard time feeding them as my girlfriend's platy eat their food before they get to it.

Corydoras need at least 5 of their own species (all the same species, not 3 panda and 2 albino). They should be fed their own food, such as sinking pellets or sinking bloodworms. Feed the platys first, then on the opposite side of the tank feed your corydoras. The platys will be distracted and will try to steal the food, but not as much as before.

I had 8 pepper and 8 bronze.. I'm down to one of each and don't really trust going to the fish store yet with this Rona business. I'll add more though.
