Question Aquascaping 20 gallon high?

I got a new 20 gallon high aquarium today, which is twice as tall as a normal 10 gallon, and I need some ideas on how to decorate it. Perhaps a tall piece of driftwood? Does anyone here have a 20 gallon high with pics? I need ideas. Thanks.

you should check out Your Tanks section and see other members 20gallon tank pictures, theres a couple of really good aquascaped 20gal high tanks there that might give you some ideas. I also think tall driftwood is good, another thing is to get some similar looking and sized rocks and put it on top of each other to create a mountain look, or make a slope on your substrate or something. I also have 20g high, but its not that well scaped, only using it for practice (im still newbie hehe) coz im planning of getting bigger tank and better equipment in the near future.

here is the link

i planned this one to be easy to set up. it is planted with Home Depot-esque varieties. i hope to finish planting it up tonight. i have it in a little provisional photo studio, but i will move it into place and also add fish sometime soon.
