I think I heard someone mention a moss wall, I would vote against it. I see lots of people with moss walls that always fail because they take too long, so the tank just ends up looking messy.
yea most of them just crash. never realy been a fan of that style anways.

i tried to angle the rock ether back or perfectly strait up and down for this exact reason to benefit were light hits in the right places. As everyone knows most good foreground plants take a lot of light to really take off so i thought about this right off the bat luckily

You took it that extra step though and I think the added height makes a HUGE difference.

I agree with others about keeping the planting simple. Don't overcrowd it with plants, and let the hardscape do the talking.
oh yea super simmple is the way to go for this scape.
