I could use some opinions on my plant scaping

So I am trying to arrange my plants in my tank and hittin kind of a road block.

This is where I am at at the moment





All of that dead space in the back is gonna get filled with stem plants.

I also have val nana, narrowleaf chain sword, and pearlweed (chainsword and pearlweed coming in mail tomorrow) to fit in. Foreground is gonna be four leaf clover. I am having a hard time deciding where to fit in my 3 crypts I have growing. I was originally gonna put them where my downoi are but they looked like they would end up covering my nana petites I have growing. I am open to any suggestions and Ideas. I am also open to rearranging what I have already done. Thanks.

im not all that good at scaping either but one thing i would do is add a background. white gives the tank more depth imo but black would be better in your case to hide the equipment in the tank

Try moving your wood a little to the right. I thikn its too close to the edge of tank to plant behind. I think this will give space to put a more bushy effect behind it.
Other than that let it fill in. most tanks look funny till the plants fill in enough.

I plan to add a black background once I have finished everything.
