I don't like it though lol. It needs more/something else/totally changing/dunno. What do you guys think and what would you suggest?

Personally I find the coconut a bit distracting due to its non-natural shape. Maybe you can put some moss on top of it, plant around it or find another way of making it less prominent.

- placing Anubias on the left hand piece of bogwood as you have already mentioned. This should run for the full extremity of the left hand piece and maybe even trail up the back edge of the right piece to give the Anubias some height
- Move the left piece of bogwood to the right by about an inch
- Move the right piece of bogwood to the left by around 2-3 inches so that the arc that it creates is in the golden ratio area assuming that the picture is taken at the extent of the tank. This should place on open substrate area there. Also rotate the bogwood clockwise by about 15 degrees
- Stagger the central plants to follow the line of the right piece of bogwood that you have just rotated so that it makes the tank look deeper and will allow it to fill out more
- Remove the coconut and try to find a small piece or two of bogwood that would make a cave.
- Move the new bogwood forward about 2" from the current coconut position to leave less space in front.
- Once you replace the Coconut I would add more Anubias to the top to balance the Anubias on the left piece. You could try going for the 'nana' on the left and then 'nana petite' on the right
- Allow the Vallisneria to grow down the left hand side of the tank leaving only about 2" from the front of the glass. Maybe buy some more to speed the process up and fill it out more along the current position
- Make sure the central plant is in front of the heater so that it is hidden as it grows (currently looks like it is very deep in the tank behind part of the heater). You could also angle the heater so that it is hidden better by rotating it anti-clockwise so the bottom is behind the right centre plant closer to how it appears to be positioned in your previous layout
- The plant to the right looks like it is clumped very tight into the corner. Maybe place it so that it is further in the tank so that it can fill out over tim

This is what is looks like now:
I still don't think it looks right. I know the AS look in too much of a row but I'm not sure how to correct it (and yes there's one that's uprooted and floating at the top) but I think there's more wrong than that. What is it?
Oh yeah, I ditched the Cambomba too as it was shedding everywhere.
and bought a new Honey G. Which was an accident.
