There's a tank in last year's AGA contest that may help inspire you.

Be sure to copy and paste the entire address, as my mail client is
line-wrapping it.    
    There have to be many different ways of doing this.  cork forms
    covere din plants, or driftwood, like the above photo, of just
    groupings of various height plants, etc.
    I'd put the filter output at one end, flowing along the a long
    glass side of the tank, and that'd likely set up a circular flow
    the length of the tank along the sides.
