You need a lot more rocks / structures and some driftwood for the plecos but other than that looks good

Driftwood is not really essential but it can be beneficial to the plecos and also the fish who will munch off it as well once it gets algae on it.

My 3 BN plecos that are in my 75g tank have made a corner of the tank that I have Cichlid stones piled up in their area. If I cannot find a pleco, unless prior to me gluing a cover on my overflow, they get into my sump, I know they will be in the stones somewhere.

The 180g tank does have a huge piece of driftwood in which I ordered online, it took 8 months of it sitting in a pale an me bleaching it, to stop it leeching tannins. Try and get one pre-treated as it will save you a lot of time having tea colored water or having to change water in a separate pale constantly.
