The tank looks good but like you already stated a background is needed. I've used a drop in background with great success. And with your tank already set up it is easy to do.
If you're interested:
Pick up a 1/4" pink insulation board.
Take a good measurement of the the back of the tank (Inside).
Cut the board to the exact dimensions.
Check the board for a snug fit.
Remove the board so you can work on it outside the tank.
Great Stuff what ever you want on the pink board (including wood, plant cups, etc).
After the great stuff dries coat the entire surface with "brown" silicone and press in what ever material you like. (I prefer peat moss)
After the silicone dries turn the board upside down and shake off the excess peat. Fill in any bare spots with more silicone and peat.
Allow to dry completely, and air out.
Slide the board back in the tank and add some silicone to the back to hold it in place.
