Suggestions on 150 gallon tank

Would like some suggestions on my 150 gallon tank. I like the way it looks but to me it looks like it is thrown together. I also want to add some lace rock to it. I was thinking about it to the right side in front of the amazon sword. I also would like to add some ground cover like dwarf grass or something similar. Here is what I have as far as water parameters and lighting and substrate.

Substrate- Eco-complete
Lighting- Two dual 36" t5ho lights/ two 6700k, two 10k bulbs
Ph- 7.0-7.2
Kh- 5-6
Co2- DIY co2 with 4 2 liter bottles with power injection

I think you would achieve a better look, and balance, by removing the tall tree-like dw pieces from the center of the tank, and place them in the rear left hand corner. The 2 white rocks there might be better placed somewhere slightly off-centre in the middle right (or middle left) portion of the tank.
You could then consider adding your intended lace rock in/around that area to create an attractive rock pile construction.
The idea is to play with your set-up a little to create main tall focus points at both ends of the tank, and a lower center area. This might entail re-locating some plants to get the look you want.
Your preference of course, to see what appeals to you most.
