Using some Hairgrass behind the rocks would also look aweseome.

Okay, so I tried to move the big rock about 1/3 of the distance of the tank. I think it really does look better. Thoughts?

+1 on the first pic but I would lose the two smaller rocks nearest the center of the tank. I would try two on the left 3 on the right and see what that looks like.
