 Pretty  neat  setup.  You  will  need  more  plants  though.
 
 No  co2.  Too  much  lighting  on  the  anubias  may  invite  algae.  Keep  up  the  water  changes.
 
 You  may  do  without  ferts  for  a  while.  DIY  is  the  cheapest  option.  Observe  the  plant  growth  and  adjust  accordingly.

 Neat  setup.I  would  advice  you  to  reduce  the  lighting  as  you  are  have  very  undemanding  plants  in  your  tank.You  would  invite  algae  as  a  result.The  shape  of  the  wood  is  unique.The  cabomba  on  the  left  is  looking  a  bit  odd  with  those  ferns  and  nana's.I  like  the  background.What  is  it?

 your  tank  is  approx  40  gallon,  for  anubias  and  fern  i  think  you  can  replace  one  36watt  pll  to  a  18watt  pll  so  a  total  of  about  54  watt...that  should  be  enough  in  my  opinion  keepin  in  mind  that  you  are  not  planning  for  co2  injection.
 
 Cheers,
 Binesh

 Is  the  bark  still  there  in  the  driftwood  ?  Why  not  remove  it  before  it  separates  from  the  wood.  The  setup  looks  neat  but  for  the  Cabomba  stems.
