Thanks again for all of the input!
Cinbos, I bought the manzanita branches off a guy on [Ebay Link Removed] I am very happy with them, though I don't think that they were completely dried out when I received them because there is quite a big of fungus/mold growing on the wood.
I added more sand near the branch bases and some Heteranthera zosterifolia today to see what it would look like and I'm about 70% happy with it. The aponogeton natans on the far left looks goofy but the plant itself is so cool I think I'll keep it until I can move it to another tank.
If anyone has plant/scape suggestions I would love to hear them!
Here are some pictures of the tank after today, still a little cloudy from planting and the recent bacteria bloom.
