Pretty good

Your tank looks pretty good the only thing that could make it better is maybe another small piece of driftwood on the right and mor plants and you'll have a great looking setup!

I'm thinking on one more big plant on the left and one large plant by the rocks and also make like 2-3 more caves right side , and yea black would be nice but I have also heard of people make backgrounds out of styrofoam but sealing an painting it . It would be interesting but a lot of work .And I'm open too suggestions on stock list

I definitely agree with more caves. I have about 1/3 of my tank filled with slate caves and they still chase each other out of them.

Pretty much whatever you like. But since you asked.

Another piece of dritwood reaching to the top breaking the water surface would look great, a few more rocks on the right creating more caves and hiding places.

Also definitely a nice background, black would be my choice.

Definitely more rocks, and even a couple more plants. Maybe move the driftwood apart so you can put two rock formation. It looks good though.
