New tank/too heavily planted?

So I finally did my new guys new tank. I was going for that deep river style...like, driftwood, dark plants, so his color pops more. Does it look too heavily planted? I'm adding a background so he stops flaring at himself in the reflection, and Im using Seaview to glue it on.

The red lugwigia go from the left side, around the filter and to the back. It was one plant that I trimmed to two.

Your ludwigia will turn BRIGHT red if you add more light but with just basic lighting it will stay just green. Either way they both look great! Good thing you tied the fern to the wood most people burry it which is no no! I would add a little more light though! I would completely take out the lid of the tank and have a really strong desktop lamp over it cuz that Ludwigia may outgrow your tank.
