So I am keeping the wood for now . and am just trying to dress it up to not make it so blatantly awkward. I attached some fissidens (thanks to h2oaggie) to it and put some around the base of the wood.
The Blyxa was starting to struggle with my current fertilizer regime. It might just be adjusting to the lower light and less ferts but I decided to place some root tabs under it just to give it some help since I like my current fert regime and everything else seems to be fine for now.
Here is a pic of how the tank currently looks.
