Iowa river tank idea need suggestions

Hi everybody, i have always wanted to do a native iowa river tank. I would use sand alot of rocks and some drift wood. I just wouldnt know how to set it all up right to make it look extremley authentic. I was thinking powerheads to make a good river current, i was thinking channel catfish with crawdaddys or maybe gars, possibly walleye. If it would be easier to make a pond style aquarium with blue gill and smallmouth bass then i would be up for it. This is definatly still on the drawing board but if any of you have any suggestions leave a post or two thanks.

Devin
