Any suggestions?

This is, more or less, the current look of my 30g. There's a gigantic wad of moss on some driftwood on the left, behind there is some stem plant (rotala perhaps, I can't remember). The whole rear center and towards the right is Blyxa, with some type of grass in the front center. Right side is another piece of driftwood with more moss.

The back wall is a thick mat of bba.

I'm thinking to trim back the giant moss on the left a bit and to remove the driftwood and moss on the right. I also want to spread the blyxa all the way to the right and closer towards the front and use something bushy behind it to hide the filter intake.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

The BBA actually looks cool. I thought it was a moss wall at first. I agree with your intents with the exception of removing the driftwood. I would just prune the moss down on it. To me driftwood gives a tank a more natural feel. Spreading out the blyxa would look nice I think. And your definite right about concealing the intake if you can. Other than that I like the tank as is.
