Looks good. You can never have enough plants!

A small area in front to better see the fish is fine. I set up my 50 gal [in 2008] with a center area in front rimmed with rocks. See photo of tank at 1 week. Worked very well. I didn't put any soil in this front area, just sand.

One thing you can do is to lower the water level temporarily. This will make it easier to do water changes and increase the amount of light getting to your young plants. At this time, you don't need 65 gal of water.
