Here is what I started with before planting my 40B.

Maybe this can give you some ideas...

It's a really nice aquarium keep me updated when you have it finished the only thing is that I have to move the rocks that I already have in the picture so I have to see what I can do with them

I dont see any pictures...

I upload them to imgur and post the images from there. It works better than the app or website for me.

What do you have as far as lighting, ferts, and carbon supplementation for your tank?

Oh, it's more than finished. Check out that awesome tank! One of my favorite tanks to look at. A keen eye for scaping for sure.
(Sorry zig, just had to share this).

Looks good IMO. I'd say leave the scape but fill in with lots of plants! Some easy plants you can try re dwarf sag, water sprite, amazon swords, java fern, anubias and java moss. Also, that is a huge pleco! How big is your tank?

My plants have them as well. They are roots that are growing from the nodes or joints of the plants. It's natural and helps the plant. They help to anchor the plant when they grow down into the substrate, and also gather nutrients from the water. Usually its a good sign that the plant is growing.

Those pics were a few months ago when I first set the tank up. I posted them for you for an idea of what I did to scape my tank.

Here is a current pic of the tank:

No need to wait. You have a good start on your tank already! When the plants grow in it will look great!
