Can someone show me some good layouts with blyxa japonica?

I'm wondering how I should place this plant. In the middle? around the rocks? on the back left and right?

I have some in my tank and all I am doing with it is trying to understand how it grows, what care it needs that's different, how big it gets, what the effect of high CO2 is on it, etc. If I ever answer all of my questions I will then figure out how I want to use it, or I will get bored with it and start the same with another unfamiliar plant. I am saying this only to point out that we have many different ways of enjoying planted aquaria, and not all are concerned with aquascaping. However, I suspect that as we learn more about the plants, get more comfortable with avoiding algae, and more comfortable with fertilizing, we all will gravitate towards aquascaping. Incidentally I really, really enjoy blyxa japonica!

Yes,
You can place it in the mid-ground and it looks great around rocks.
You can check out my tank for a few examples, in one of my pics I even used blyxa as a complete foreground.
I would stay away from the back of the aquarium as it would probably get lost under some bigger type stems.

I built a hedge around a patch of HC in my 40 gallon tank. I have L. Glandulosa, bacopa c. and Ludwigia Cuba behind it. Please ignore the "collectoritis" issues. I got the Blyxa from Jason Baliban about 2 weeks ago and am still in the mode of seeing what I can and can't grow.
