I have a 15 Tall as well. I love the dimensions, very different than a 10. I don't know what to recommend, but I will tell you my set up if it helps at all:
By the way, this tank was a 10 gallon, I just moved everything into the 15 in almost the exact same positions. It has filled in wonderfully, the extra height of the tank works our well.
Flourite/Eco Complete mix about 2 inches
40 Watt PC Current USA Satellite fixture
Zoomed 501 filter
7 Rasbora Espie
1 Neon Tetra (sole survivor of a massacre)
12 Cherry Shrimp
1 Bulldog Pleco
1 Gold Mystery Snail
Plants: (U shaped design with more plants on the left than on the right)
Foreground Left to Right: Tiger Lotus, Dwarf Hair Grass, Moss Ball
Mid Ground Left to Right: Twisty Vals, Crypt Balansei, HC
Background Left to Right: Caroliniana Green, Rotundifiolia, Micro Sword, Caroliniana Red.
I realize that some of these plants will outgrow their position in the tank, but I look forward to redoing it then!
Hardscape: Big chunk of driftwood with a cave angled on the left, some branchy stuff on the right.
I have not put up a picture yet, Ill get around to it eventually.
