    You should add a piece of driftwood. The tank looks good!

    A solid background would make a huge difference. Green or black always works.

    I agree with Marie, the first step is a solid background. I avoid green because I want some contrast with the plants, which black does better than anything else. I also use a light tan color called "stone" for the back of some of my tanks.

    I also agree with Brandon about the driftwood. In the first tank I would find a nice piece and cut it into two pieces, unequal would probably look better than exactly in half. I would then put it back together with one section on either side of the divider. Looks like your divider could use some reinforcement anyway.
