i have some suggestions, but you're not gonna like them

you have amazing light and Co2, yet your tank has no place to root!
you should remove half of that driftwood, and replace your gravel
with something that has a much smaller grain size. that way you
can grow a wider variety of plants all over your tank.

well, if you are emotionally attached to that driftwood, at least cut off that overhang on the right. maybe you can get a nice selection of crypts to grow on the wood itself, instead of just moss. maybe instead of mixing large and fine leaf plants, you can put the large leaf to the right where the shade is, and save the left side for a nicer tiered selection of fine leaf plants. with all that light, I'm surprised you don't try a foreground carpet that can still manage over that large grain size gravel.

lol oh no theres no emotional attatchment... im open to suggestions trust me as i am tired of the look.... i was actually considering removing the overhaning peice myself and moving the sword over there... and putting other stem plants where the sword is? to possibly fill it out more and close in the gaps... and trust me im anxious to get a carpet type plant... but the avaibility in bermuda for such plants inhibits my ability to do so
