I think it is funny that so many of us have that same log decoration. Here it is in my tank.
I think you would be quite happy with the look of a few real plants in your tank. So much so, that you might change them over completely. They give the tank such a natural, peaceful look. It helps with the cycle process as well. In fact, I have been told that when you start a new tank, if you add several real plants, you can add a few fish right away. The real plants help to use up the Ammonia and Nitrite so the water is better quality for the fish.
At first, it seemed difficult and like too much work but for me, I am so glad I took the plunge. You could start with a few very easy plants like the Amazon Sword. That is the one with the very large leaves in the middle of my tank.
