I agree, I do this ALL the time. I love to redocorate with what I already have. I think the second version of your tank looks really nice!

I wonder what the wood would look like propped up. Not on it's end straight up, but maybe put a cave or rock on the sand and then lean the wood at an angle, as if it just fell from somewhere and landed there. Am I making any sense LOL!?

I really like the second one. I would like to suggest maybe a red or a bronze cryptocoryne wendtii on the left side in front of the sword towards the front of the tank to add some color to the tank they will grow well in low light tanks and a black background would really make the plants and fish stand out.
I agree with the others make it to your liking then if you get tired of it rearrange it. I redid my 55 a few weeks ago then this weekend I did my 3 10 gallons, my 5 gallon and my 2.5 gallon.

This tank looks nice! I really love the bright appeal the tank has. Its sort of dreamy with the bright greens and the white sand. My two cents on moving plants - do it. I've feared moving them and am quite a perfectionist. But the beauty of a planted tank is that the plants will grow and change the view of the tank anyhow. And is still looks like a paradise. Not to mention free plants. It's always best to learn and explore by yourself :) Hope we get to see more pictures of this wonderful tank. hint hint ;)

p.s. As for the rule of thirds, it is (as has been said) based on the golden ratio and is a foundational design principle in nearly all aspects of design: Graphic, photographic, typographic, and on it goes even into the fish tank. And a note to you cbrik, if you want the driftwood in the middle, put it there if it pleases you. It can function aesthetically if you make it prominent, but the focus would have to be solely centered in the middle IMO. All opinions aside, it's your tank ;)
