Wow!  I like this idea, thanks for sharing it.  Maybe 
when I get that bigger tank someday....(daydreams)
    I  have a 29 gallon planted tank, that I just 
rearranged.  It just occurred to me to try a sort of 
"downhill slope" sort of thing, with  the tallest plants at 
one end, going down to the shortest plants at the 
opposite end.  This is the back half the tank roughly.  I'm 
going to try putting little diagonal "half-rows" of really 
short plants sort of coming out from between the back 
rows of tall plants into the empty front half of the tank.  
I've just gotten the "keeping plants alive" part down, and 
this is the first time I've been far enough along to think of 
their arrangement, really.
