Think you can improve with a bit more foreground plants either planted in soil or on rocks with some background plants to complete the aquascaping. Overall, gd effort!

Some rocks can help to further beautify the scape

I think once your blyxas bloom up, the left side will look very green green loh. Nice! Does Blyxa need high lighting to do well.

Potential scape. Good job. Simple scape but look natural. It would be great when mature. Looking forward
