Default Need some planting advice for a couple areas in viv

I have a couple spots in my viv that I would like some advice as maybe what to put in these 2 locations. I am looking for something to grow out of the driftwood on the left and then something on the R also.

I'm hoping to have moss and peperomias grow on the branches but would like something coming out of the rocks or behind them

Dude: Are the second set of pics the same tank, planted?

If so, that's fine. But please clarify!

Flyfhsr,

The tank looks well-planted. Are you sure you need a larger plant in the spots you circle - they don't look especially empty to me

Have you considered a non-plant additinion for those spots like an especially attractive rock or hunk of driftwood - that might be a nice spot for any inhabitants to perch or for moss to creep onto...

How big is the viv? From the picture I can't tell if it's a 20gal or 90gal.

If its a 90gal I might suggest a small alocasia, but that would be way to big for a small tank.

I thought about a coconut hide or something on the right maybe, or if I run across any unique pieces of driftwood. Right now I have some rabbit foot fern behind the branchy driftwood that I was thinking about removing because it doesn't look quite right.
