need tips for tank scape.

My title pretty much says it.... I'm bored and am tired of what I keep coming up with my scapeing ideas. Any advice is much appreciated.

This is my 90 gal tall... South American cichlid tank.

Inhabitants are two tiger Oscars... One red spotted golden severum... One red devil... One common pleco... And one bristlenose pleco.

So please keep in mind the size off these fish when they reach adulthood...
Oscars at 12"+
red spotted golden severum 8"+
Red devil 8"+
common pleco 12"- 24"
bristlenose pleco 8"-10".

I know I might be a overstocked but it's working for now... If they run out of room in the future I have another large tank.

Please leave some ideas of urs... But nothing to do with live plants.... My Oscars kill my fake ones as it is... Lol thanks.

H'mm, I would think maybe a background or is it positioned as to see through both sides? I like what you have done. With Oscars your are limited as far Plants like you said. I have only a couple live ones. How about some Bamboo?
It's pretty tough should survive the Oscar onslaught. Maybe you could position the rock in order to provide some hiding places?

The only background ive found that will fit is blue or black..... :/ It's 48"long and 31"tall. I might as well paint it.

Lol I put a tree behind the tank to kindof distract the focus of the corner.... But idk.

The rock does have slot of hiding spots... Idk... I'm just not happy with it.

I love the bamboo idea. I seriously have like 500lbs of rock... Just kinda scared to throw it in there. Not to mention I'm trying to figure out a set up that will work when they grow up.

What do u think of buying some plants and maybe gluing them to the back in a way that won't compensate to much space.... Aquarium glue of course....

I found some air stone with color changing leds I thought about placing along the back.... Idk.
