Maybe i could add some jungle val? Not sure if it would look out of place though.

Maybe take out the two rocks (if you don't like them) and stand up a couple of pieces of the shale, leaning against the back.

To be honest I preferred your very 1st set up, plenty of swimming space for Cyps too. This latest set up looks unnatural imo..

With the shells for the caudopunctatus, do they need to be in the same place or can they be like 8in from each other?

You could put a few shells close to each other, and one a bit further away. They will prefer to be closer to some rocks though, and mind chose barnacles over shells. As to whether that rock work will work... only time will tell. Sometimes you need to make adjustments depending on the situation.
