Hello S and welcome...
If you're an animal person in general, you'll appreciate the need for "things". For animals, it's usually toys and a comforatble place to sleep. For fish, it's a lot of places to hide in case an aggressive tankmate is creating a problem or just a place to swim alone in a secluded place.
You have a nice tank. Eventually, your fish will be more comfortable in a home with a lot of neat areas to hide. I keep large tanks and have them well planted. The hiding places don't have to be real plants. Just use your imagination and make something. Otherwise, the tank looks the same all the time.
Just a thought.
