As far as the mudskippers go it depends, it's not a general rule that they get 6 inches, some get up to a foot and the smallest get around 4 inches, but that seems to be the happy medium for most in the pet trade (well those easily obtained) usually get between 6-10 inches. In saying that, if you look around you'll find ways people make terraces, backgrounds, and the like out of foam by heating it up with a blow dryer...look on any cichlid forum and you're bound to find something like that. Other than that, you could always make it out of rocks and cork...or find some decent driftwood that would server your purpose...even with the right arrangement rockwork will allow you to make a terrace, just the sand or gravel might not stay in one place if you plan to have a current. I used slate one time to stack up against gravel/rocks/sand and made a terrace for some toad tadpoles to crawl out on. It seemed to work fine for them...
