Looking good, bt IMO if you remove the single thin wood from front then it'll look good.

12 neon tetra
6 guppies more
Zebra daino
Seaemese algae eater
And another which do better in a planted aquarium....

Just check on the volume before adding extra fish to avoid overcrowding. Whats the tank capacity and filtration being used ?
Don't mean to scare you or put you off. But Siamese Algae eaters do best in schools and may become territorial if kept in isolation. They grow to around 6 inches and will dwarf the other fish you have once fully grown. Tetra and Guppies get to around 1-1.5 inches. Some Danio grow to 2.5 inches or thereabouts.

Its looking good, all the best.

I was bitten by the aquarium bug in January :D I now have two planted tanks.
I am building a third one(6 footer) where I hope to house some Meghalaya Leopard (Channa).
