I would lose the rocks and replace with some real plant substrate. Then have only vals in the middle of the hex. the plant would be visible from all sides and the fish will be seen swimming around the plants.

Another nice plant that will be more manageable than vals would be some type of Rotala, but I don't think the light would be enough to grow them to well.
