It's a little hard to tell which plant species you have in that tank. I am guessing Gymnocornis is the tall, corn-like plant. I see some Ludwigia repens and maybe some water sprite?

First of all, I think that this aquarium could look good if you let all the stem plants on the right side grow out and become really bushy, creeping out over what seem to be tufa rocks. I recommend the following plants to you to get that effect:

Heteranthera zosterifolia
Rotala rotundifolia 'Green'
Rotala rotundifolia
Mayaca fluviatilis
Ludwigia repens
Hemianthus micranthemoides
Micranthemum umbrosum
Rotala wallichii
Hygrophila difformis

You may want to consider repositioning and/or wrapping those large red tufa rocks in java moss. The color will probably not result in a pleasant combination if you decide to use a lot of red plants.

Keep us updated and welcome!

Are those sword plants in the upper left hand corner? I would suggest removing them and replacing them with Hygrophila corymbosa "siamensis" instead. These stem plants will provide similar leaf texture without taking over your entire tank.
