75 gallon planted tank looking for ways to improve

I have a 75 gallon planted tank with amazon swords, java ferns, and banana plants. I have a dual t5ho aquatic life 48" and dose pro pps. I also have diy co2 but Im starting a paintball setup as soon as my GLA paintball regulator comes in the mail. I was looking to see if anyone could give me any ideas for my tank thanks in advance.

It looks pretty good! If that were my tank, i'd probably add a few more rocks as hiding places or maybe a tall piece of driftwood. And i feel like its a little dark looking, but it could just be the picture. But other than that, it looks great!

Have you considered some crypts? They are root feeders just like swords are. Depending on your lighting maybe look into getting some color in there, maybe a crypt wendtii red or an ech. Ozelot red sword (my most recent additions that have done well for me). Hopefully Rivercats will pop in and give you advice, she's awesome and anything plants

Where the tank is between my kitchen has floodlights for lighting so it looks dim because the room is very bright.
