Replanting and would love suggestions

I have a 90g tank that I have planted at the moment but I didn't put any thought in it when I bought the plants. So now that they are starting to grow in I realized its not what I wanted. I keep seeing pics of planted tanks that I really like but they rarely tell what plants are in the tank. Even a local lfs has some really nice planted tanks.....but doesn't sell most the plants that are in the tanks. I had to almost beg him for a few clippings of one of his plants.

The back right I was thinking of just having wisteria and get rid of the plants I have there now. The long leaf plant that you can see is taking over my tank and I want it gone.

This side I want to keep the Lilly pad looking plant, but want something else mixed in with it. The left side next to the overflow I thought about taking all the anacharis and placing it there and doing like a little jungle there. The far right I have no idea what to place there.

This is in front of the overflow and I wanted to put myrio red, myrio green and rotala rotundifolia all mixed together. Not sure if I should plant anything in front of these.

This is the front right side and I currently have crypts, ludwigia and whatever that dark green/red plant. These I would like to keep.

I'm really open on ideas or layouts that any of you have. I do not want the entire back to be covered, except the overflow. I have a really nice rockwall background that I would still like to see. My substrate is flourite and about 4 inches deep. In the next month or 2 I will have a complete co2 system up and running. My lights are a 3 bulb (6700k) T5HO on a timer with lunar LED's. The bulbs are on 2 separate timers with one bulb on for 12 hours and the other 2 come on for about 6 hours.

Would you consider removing the fruity pebbles looking gravel and going with something natural looking? That'd improve your tank 1000%. You actually have some pretty nice plants. I won't comment on the skull and the no fishing sign.

Just some inspiration. The vals in the back have grown much longer since i took this pic. Its about 2 months old. Try to post newer pic later if interested. This is too a 90gallon.
