Looking for Theme Ideas

So I'm toying with the idea of turning my tank into a themed edition. Only problem is - there is no way I will be able to start from scratch. I do not want to kill my fishies and I have no other tank that they can live in while I transition things.

SO: My first question is, is this a horribly dangerous idea? Would moving around my hardscape/plants/substrate damage my water parameters to the point of mass kill-offs??

If your answer is yes, PLEASE POST.

If your answer is no, I would love suggestions for a theme I could go for while using the substrate and maybe some of the hardscape that is already in my tank (I -need- wood in my tank as I have 2 clown plecos). I am hoping to do something unique (instead of copying someone else's tank), but I am at an aquascaping-idea-block.

Suggestions encouraged!

My tank as of 2 days ago:

50g Tetra community - neon, blue, glowlight, serpae, black neon, & rummynose tetra + pea puffer, clown plecos, SAE, otos, amano shrimp, & nerites

Or if you want to keep it looking more natural then how about stone henge ?

Toying with the idea of using that centre log as a 'volcano' type centrepiece... gah I am so tempted to try and get a bigger tank and start from scratch. >.<
