Im starting to set up a tank for a South American Puffer. I was thinking about making it all roots, like the shore of a mangrove swamp. Does anyone know how to do this easily, also any good resources would be well appreicated.

You can do that by guiding the aerial roots of (for example) certain Philodendron species into the tank. I did that with Monstera deliciosa, a common house plant. It grows into a labyrinth of roots fairly quickly. I suppose it takes nutrients out of the water column as well.
