Need help with my lava rock cube

I'm working on a 12" cube probably for shrimp... this is what I threw together. I'm afraid it looks a little bland right now. Any sugestions? I've got quite a bit more rock I could swap out if need be.



OK, I've added new pic in case someone else has a comment.

specs, possible plant list, substrate? The hardscape seems composed well, but hard to judge without substrate. I can't tell if there are 4 or 5 rocks? Remember that even numbers are your enemy if you're going for a natural look. The brain has a tendency to pair things together. If you have an even number, your brain will pair everything and stop looking around (not interesting). If there's an odd number, the eye will continuously wander

The substrate will probably be black sand or blasting grit topping soil.

There are five rocks now, that can be easily changed, I have quite a lot. I'm going to scatter rubble near the base of the rocks.

The plants will probably be flame moss, dwarf sag, crypts, vals, pygmy chain sword, Anubias and things like that.
