I understand your dilema, the people here are just trying to give you advice, and be helpful. I am sure no one is saying your tank is "not up to par", your tank, is your tank and what you do with it is up to you. You asked a question and received replies. Unforunately you are not always going to get answers that you agree with, thats part of asking for advice.
My only advice to you is when you have some extra cash try getting a 1 or 2 taller plants for the back. I have always gone with fake plants (my personal preference) they are inexpensive and some look just as real as live plants. Add a small decoration of some sort for the fish to go in and out of such as a small cave or something. They sell fairly cheap at walmart or petsmart stores.
I have a small 10 gallon tank for my daughter and of course I didnt want to spend alot of money on it so I bought things slowly and cheap but ya know what, it is a very cute tank now and her fish are doing wonderful.
I wish you all the best in what ever your decission is.
