I'd take out the towers and replace them with rock or wood... other than that it looks pretty nice.

I think you should look at this like urban planners do when trying to integrate tall buildings into the landscape. That small tower needs to be fixed so it isn't leaning, it should match the other tower, that should help with perspective.

The tall tower, plant tall bushy things around it to soften the edges and something in front that will grow to about halfway up. Do almost the same thing with the other tower. Put a low growing carpet something in front of it.

For something cool, you could grow moss on top of the towers so that it hangs down. Otherwise I would probably leave them bare.

My thoughts.

So, I should plant the anubias and maybe put the crypts in from of the tall tower and the corkscrews in front of the small?

I may move them both to one side to create a focal point
