This is a picture of how my 55 gallon tank was set up originally:


I have since decided that I like a more natural look with live plants, so I recently rescaped the 55g. Here is a current picture:


as you can see, I have replaced the gravel with playsand, took out the big blue plastic stump, replaced the silk plants with real ones, all of which were trimmings from my 29 gallon planted tank, and added some wood and rocks. I am currently working on a lighting upgrade and then will add more plants, including some low growing foreground plants, and a DIY co2 system. I am also looking for a nice peice of wood to replace the remaining plastic ornaments in the tank.

The sword was in my 29g planted tank with around 3wpg, and I upgraded the lighting in the 55g to ~2.25 wpg
