Aquascape Ideas

I have a 55 gallon tank that's currently empty and was looking for some ideas for my aquascape. Can anyone with a similar or a 55g post up some pics here so I can put something together? Thanks. Also, how many lbs of live/base rock should I use? Thank you in advance !

As for the rock, you can use as much or as little as you like. Whatever you think looks good. If you're using it as your filtration, then a rule of thumb is 1- 1 1/2 # per gal. If you have a sump or canister you're using, then add as much as you like the look of.
I have a 55g reef. You can find pics on my thread called "update of Beengirl's 55g reef" under the SW members tanks section.
