Instead of making a curtain of the vals in back, how about moving them all to one corner (I'm thinking left behind the wood) and then adding some stem plants like Rotala sp. green, or a colorful crypt. Also, look through the PlantFinder to see what plants would do well in your tank and what you like. Have you looked at the Marsilea species for a foreground? (see here) They will grow well with lower light and they do stay reasonably short.
