I don't have any E. Vesuvius. I used to have it and really liked it. It can get about 10"tall. The twist is cool.
You could use blyxa as a midground. It will of course give you a grassy look. I might go with something with larger leaves. You have all smaller leaves. You could do anubias types, some crypts with larger leaves like C. wendtii. If you used the bronze version you'd get that more red hue next to your green foreground, which would be a neat tie-in. There are so many choices. Sometimes I have just pulled the entire plantfinder up and looked at leaves to see what might work.
I'd love to have some patches of staurogyne repens. I thought I had some coming along but I still have some fish eating it. I wish I knew who it was. I suspect the columbian tetras but have never watched it.
