I think it looks great the way it is! If you aren't happy with the left side, maybe just thicken the plants a bit or add some wood?
A fairly easy way to catch small bottom-dwelling fish is to make a bottle trap. Here:

I suggest baiting it with frozen food. FYI, the easiest way to get the fish out is to just pull the two pieces apart underwater.
I would also suggest adding another otto or two, as they seem happier with company. Maybe you could add Endler's Livebearers when you get the cories out?

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.
