that northern Venezuela black water tank sounds fricken awesome, so who knows. I might track down another 30g hex, or just use the 20H or my 30g to do something similar.
That Northern Venezuela biotope tank was in TFH about a year ago. They had it set up in a 40 breeder and it looked totally awesome. He had a couple of banjos, 4 or 6 apistos, and a cloud of pencilfish going on in there. If you don't have/don't want to go with lighting good enough for plants (though a 40 breeder needs less light than you would expect. I am getting great plant growth from a single tube in mine) that's fine, as there are very few plants in the area, but, if you do want plants, some anachris or vals along the back or moss or ferns on the driftwood could add a really nice accent, particularly if you set up a slight transverse current to bend them just a bit.
