Talking What to do with my 10???

ive got a 10gallon with 1 bag of flourite and an eclipse 1 twin tube (30watts)
ever since i got my 28bow running i really dont have a good use for it... ive got clippings already growing in my 5gal jerry rig tank, i need new intrest... how about this idea... i love the hight of 15talls so how would that look with my filtration..? would it be adequate? and that would only be 2wpg, yes i know that that rule is only applied on medium sized tanks... not big or nano's but... does anyone here possibly have and eclipse 1twin, with flourite in a 15??? i would love to see a pic.... that and with the added weight will it hold on the wally stand? with a 15 tall you dont have much room for a foreground if you decide to put stargrass in there do you?... Without upgrading anything what could i do? like in plant/ fish combos...and with upgrading to a 15tall what plant/fish combo... If you are anything like me you look at people's tanks and dream of how you would do it... time for you to cash in your ideas... beacuse i want them!

out of the aquarium for a while... college

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.
15 Tall
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)
5 Otos
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.
