Show off your 55g!

Does anyone here have a 55g scape they would like to share? I am rescaping my 55g, and I want to see how people cope with the narrow layout of the tank. Feel free to post anything, I just want some inspiration.

It's still a work in progress plant wise but slowly getting it filled in. The rocks in the middle are just keeping my driftwood from floating. Plan on taking them out but who knows maybe not if plants fill in around it!

Not sure what parts are tempered though. I have an extra piece of glass even.

Doesn't quite look quite like this anymore after a massive rescape. But I did really enjoy this for a time.
