I love the moss, it looks very natural the way you have it growing along the wood. And you have a buce bud! (😠 I'm envious!)
Personally I would add more plants at the back, perhaps some vallisneria to give a little movement to the scape? Though I'm in the "you can't have too many plants" camp so the fish would be hard to spot!

I agree with this, always nice to have some taller plants at the back!
