I need tank decoration ideas!

Ok, so far for the 135 Gallon tank I have the following:

1.) About 12 pieces of Mopani... The tank will look like tea for a year I think.
2.) 150 Lbs of Slate stacked along the back wall
3.) overflow stacks rolled in gravel (look like stone pillars)
4.) Lots of plants

I dont know what else I could use to "accent" the tank. Any ideas? In my other tanks I use small pieces to contrast the primary decoration, like terracota pots on dark blue gravel. This tank is "supposed" to look like a stream cutting through a slate bed with roots abound. I'm thinking though that it needs a little flair... Bamboo poles maybe? Large round Rocks? I just don't know. M
