There are a TON of plants from south america that you could use. It doesn't have to be the standard "leaves and brown water" although I think that looks really nice for discus.

I can't find the research website now, but in general if you want to do south american or amazon in general from what I've read .. well, you know the saying "if you don't like the weather wait 5 minutes?" The amazon is like that. Don't like the biotope, go down 1 mile. Totally different in each bend. You could start collecting in general south american plants and just pick the ones that work for your setup. I did an asian tank although it kind of turned into "whatever the LFS had available" LOL. I don't have the money to buy a lot online. But you could keep your eye out. Swords are a plant from south america, you could always start there :)
