Thinking Amazon, is anyone else?

I am flirting with setting up a new 55G amazon tank. I am thinking of a DIY background with a crazy forest of buttress and mangrove roots. Just wondering if anyone has a set up they would be willing to share for inspiration. Any suggestions or advice would be much aprecidted. I am starting some Drylok roots now but won't be setting up the whole gig for some time. I have s lot of research yet to do. As always, your help is much appreciated .

I'd go for a 75g instead since it is wider and will accommodate a background better than the 55g.

I have an 80 gallon in my Sig that is amazon themed. It's not DIY the background was bought, but I think it's a pretty sweet amazon tank.

Good call. I wish I could go for the 75. 12 inch depth is really going to limit my options. WHat other tanks do you think would work well. I am a palud guy so the backgrounds are a huge part of the fun for me. Thats the only piece to this puzzle that is a must for me.................that, and low tech.
