AHHH that would be cool! Very possible if you ask me.

Paludarium (part submerged, part emersed) or vivarium (same, but less water) tank is what you would look into. Have seen fog machines used on those as well. Not sure how filtration systems are set up on those.
Not the best at recommending plants, so I won't.
You could try and find nice driftwood, or possibly make a 3D background with foam/fiberglass sealed with non-toxic epoxy resin and paint it up nicely. Lot of tutorials out there to make them look realistic. Might be your best bet, as real driftwood might be challenging to find the right style pieces and be able to mount them securely in the upright position.

Just make sure the X-Wing isn't toxic :P

Funny I was thinking about scaping the Pelanor Fields in front of the gates of Minas Tirith out of HC. I have a polystone model of Minas Tirith i was going to put in the back.

I wanted to do a wrecked star destroyer. A kind of, "nature reclaims all" kinda deal. Have the damage to the SD be extensive, blown out engines, ruptured hull, etc. Then have it broken by gentle plants and mosses growing out of the wreck.

Man, I can just picture that. Would be a work of art, that's for sure.

Anyone have tanks here that incorporate figurines?
Not just nice looking aquascapes replicating mountains, forests, shores, etc... (natural/organic scenes). I mean it can pretty much be like those aquascapes but with a figurine as the main focal point and the scene (plants and hardscape) is based around it.
