scaping with rocks in a large tank?

Anyone have any pictures of scaping done with rocks in a 6ft long? I am trying to get some ideas and the only ones I can seem to pull up with a google search use driftwood for the most part.

are you keeping cichlids and do you plan on stacking them? Most rock scapes I've seen have been cichlid tanks which for the most part are not planted. Cichlid forum has plenty of rock scapes

For Sale: Parachute. Only used once, never opened, small stain.

This isn't as long as your tank but it could give you a good idea to get the rocks in there but have the tiger barbs and loaches stand out.
