what about aponogetons?
Well I would reccomend you split the plants into more "bunches" instead of lining them up side by side. the background, midground, and foreground don't have to be defined by paralell lines, and it might help with the symmetrical-ness. instead of basing on the center, base it about 7 inches to the left or right, and when you hit the wall of the tank start on the other side.
Also, what about an aponogeton cr? They would contrast nicely, with their vertical leaf-stems adding a different kind of vertical element. I've grown my apon crispus successfully in 5.2 ph water. They'll shade their area and flower, perhaps setting seed. (I got seed from mine, now I have three baby plants)
True, none are from south america originally, but they have become naturalized there.
Who's to say the angelfish aren't glad it happened?
You could always drop some identifiable pebbles into the aquarium and use them to plant the plants in each category randomly...
I'm looking forward to my main apono dying off, because I made the same mistake, planting it in the exact center of the tank.
