Aquascaping suggestions

Alright guys so after weeks of researching and planning I am just a few days away from changing my old overstocked community aquarium to a planted endlers livebearers species tank. Tomorrow I will be switching out the gravel for black fluorite same and this weekend I will be giving back the fish I have to a LFS and buying my first plants. So far the shopping list is
- 3 pieces of Pygmy chain sword
- a cutting of Java Moss
- a Brazilian Pennywort
- 2 pieces of Corkscrew Vallisneria
I was just hoping you guys could give me some ideas on how to move the hardscape around for now and give me an idea of where I should plant everything so I have a general idea of where to put the plants when I buy them. I can tinker with their placement after that. So anyway here is a pic of the tank right now.



Thanks for all the help!

Yeah I was doing that last night and I think I have some ideas I wanna try now. one think that really jumped out at me was growing the java moss on the driftwood. from what I have seen it creates a very cool tropical effect. also I added the flourite to the tank yesterday and while it was originally very cloudy it has started to clear up nicely. pics below! I will taking a trip to the LFS this afternoon to give back the fish I have now and to pick up the plants. I will post some pics as soon as the plants are in the aquarium.

well the plants are in the tank but I didn't have the chance to change the fish out yet. anyway here are some pictures. the tank got clouded up again when I planted them so maybe on monday or tuesday I will be able to post pictures of the tank when it's clear so you can really see my aquascaping.
