Right after months of sorting out the house the tank is back in the game... what can i do. I have a wife to contend with that wants certain plants to stay.

The Vallis must stay apparently as does the large Echindorus. The wood you can see will be hard to tear away from her too.

Im really not sure what angle to take. (Im not that creative...) This is a slightly older pic but the list of plants i have are

Vallis (2 types. one thick one thin)
The Large Echindorus (Type unknown)
The Small Echindorus dead in the middle.
Anubias 4 seperate
5 Amazon Swords (not doing great but picking up)

As to the wood the right hand peices are 2 bits and there is also another hidden behind the Vallis as a cave. The other half like the idea or rocks and slate. so this could be an option.

i would buld up a triangle scape using most of your plants and just adding some hairgrass (the green area) a bit like this, (sorry about the crude paint edit) :D
