Some rocks and make caves out of them. They like to hide and once aggression starts up in that size tank you'll be happy they have places to hide and so will they.

Maybe a nice piece of driftwood.

Here's my 75 gallon to give you an idea of scaping. May I also suggest painting the background.

Thank you. You use a wallpaper sold at the local per store or use black paint and a roller and just roll it on.

The driftwood was from a local fish store. It's a different kinds.
