I think it's looking good! I love the sand substrate and by the way, if it is bettas that you have in there they enjoy the tea-stained water. I have one betta that tail-bites and if I keep his water stained really dark he stops, so it definitely does benifit them. Most betta breeders use indian almond leaves and driftwood to get the same results and I keep mine in stained water for the same reason.
As for the plants, live ones definitely are more work and if you get the slower growing, low light ones they won't fill in any time soon usually. Honestly, your fake ones look good the way they are placed, so if you don't want live, then don't bother.
Thank you soooooo much Kim, unfortunately the brown water isn't quite what I was going for, but it will clear up eventually so I don't care too much.
