    Rocks, Rocks, Rocks, Rocks, Some artificial plants, more rocks.
    Anything that you like in your tank. You're the one who has to see it every day.
    So you're the one who would know what you like best.
    As long as you have enough rocks for hiding places with a few plants you'll be fine.

    Just look all over the internet and youll find something that really catches your eye and try to recreate it with your own twist

    Wood. I prefer wood. Less of a risk of hurting something it if falls (including glass) and I think it looks nicer and it lowers pH which South Americans will like. So wood. And you could even attempt to grow some anubias on it.

    soak/boil it prior to putting it in your tank to remove as many tannins as possible and run carbon in your filter for a few weeks after you put the wood it. It'll clear up.

    I have a huge piece of wood that I soaked in a trashcan for 2 months changing the water every other day. I finally got sick of that (water was still brown) and put it in my tank. 2 years later my water is clear! (it actually cleared up after about 6 months).
