Your best bet is to keep it simple. Even the 2 fake stumps get moved by my hybrid. I gave up even on fake plants.

[Moderator Edit] The beauty in a pet, wet or dry, is their appearance and personality, not their ability to break things or hurt others.

Mike said less is definitely more. They are quite intelligent, so little things that they can "play" with is really all they need.

Also spyguy you can get the large plastic tree root at petsmart. when its on sale its under $30. There is enough room under it for your midevil to fit. My hybrid dug a pit and sleeps under it.

Is it off topic for me to say that the story of Gulp has made me smile for days now?

Quite relevant! True story too. Gulp is quite a lucky mid evil as often these fish are sold to keepers unwilling to accommodate them.

Hello spyguy
Under gravel filter and power heads is a proven method for these tank busters.I know the science doesn't add up but the plastic filter plates protect the bottom from falling rocks and the fact the substrate is uneven so what,you have water movement .
You can get old tank syndrome from this,since it sounds like your concerned about maintenance that should not be issue .
So sorry forgot chomp might not tolerate lift tube and power heads,maybe put the plates in anyway to protect the bottom

Can also use Fluorescent Light diffuser aka eggcrate. Though that board looks good!
