Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I think I'll just fill it in with the lilaeopsis and maybe bring in some hydrocotyle sibthorpioides as well. I'd like to keep that side open and simple.

Ok, so I lied about that last scape looking good. The longer I looked at it, the less I liked it. Under planted, under structured, generally unimpressive.
