Lightbulb Calling all plant experts for my new hardscape

Hello,

Here's my new hardscape. I'm looking for plant suggestions.

I'm pretty set on using rotala rotundofolia, Rotala H'ra in the background. With some Proserpinaca palustris in the middle to break the color with another tint. I might be missing some green though?

Otherwise, I'm stuck with what plants to use in the midground, right now I'm thinking of:

Staurogyne repens mixed in with Alternanthera reineckii 'mini', & Eriocaulon King Crimson mixed in with Eriocaulon Hainan Island.

As you can see in the hardscape, on the right there's lots of rooms, but near the wooden structure I would need a plant that can fit within the crack of the wood. Maybe the reineckii?

It looks like you are planning it out really well. But you are asking for opinions. When i saw your tank, i immediately thought that i would throw some cryptocoryne wendtii between your rock formations. I love throwing that in places of transition. The tank looks good! Good luck!

This isn't rocket surgery
