No problem.

If I were planting this tank I would move the red plant either to the left or the right somewhat - its colour makes it an obvious centrepiece so there's no need to put it right in the dead centre. Things look too symmetrical - not much in nature is symmetrical.

I would also place it (or another tall plant) in front of the intake to hide it somewhat.

Lastly, I would add some medium to short plants in the foreground to give the tank a bit of a back-to-front slope. It will increase the feeling of depth (or in this case, width!)

A nice start!

They are going to want caves/rocks to hide under... break line-of-sight.

Just my 2¢

You might want to check out Cichlid stones by underwater Galleries . I bought the 15 pack & the fish love em. They're light and easy to move for cleaning. Sorry no pics yet.
