Everything looks great, specially that driftwood! I wish I could find 
driftwood that looks that great. Just a suggestion:

You might want to get more stem plants like that Ceratopteris thalictroides 
and Ludwigia repens to suck up the nutrients so you don't get any algae 
growth. You have quite a bit of rooted plants, like the swords, that won't 
draw any nutrients from your water column. The main thing about a new tank 
is not allowing the algae to get a foothold in your tank in the first place 
so you want those stem plants sucking up the nutrients in the water column.
