33 Long aquascape

Hello all. I have recently began to add plants to my 33 long. Tank dimensions are 48x12x12. I have so far madagascar lace, rotala indica, crypt wendtii and balansae. Any suggestions for scaping and different easy, low tech plants? I like plants that are more like crypts and swords that dont require trimming like stem plants.

Plant wise I'd consider to add either Anubias or some moss on the wood, and perhaps group the taller background plants a bit more to create some space between them. What struck me the most when I first looked at your photo is the very visible heater though, perhaps you could try and hide it behind the wood a bit more?
