I am considering changing Sidney's home (help everyone)....

So, Sidney is about a year old, and he's only about 16 inches long, but I think that might be because he has had coccidia (could this be it?). So, right now he is just in a 40 gallon breeder sized tank (36"x18"x18"). So I was thinking about building him a tank that was 4'x2'x2' out of melamine and glass (still don't know if it will be sliding glass doors, or something else). I was just wondering if there was anyway to make it look nice on the inside (like decorations) and still be able to keep the green indoor/outdoor carpetting (for safety reasons), but what can I do to kind of make it look a little more natural? Are there any kinds of plants I could put in in a shallow pot on the cold side? Something that wouldn't need to be watered everday, and that Sidney wouldn't ruin right away. Or should I just put some more branches in and stuff? I was thinking about taking some wood, and buiding like a little shanty or maybe a little playhouse (with multiple stories) or something like that. Also, are there any nice, big, flat rocks I can get? I have a bunch of medium sized (about 6") rocks in his tank now, but they don't have flat bottoms, so I can't get them to stop from moving around when he walks on them.

Basically, I am looking for ways to make his new home (which will be built probably in the middle or end of summer) or even just his current home look a little better and stuff. If you have any ideas, tell me.

Also, what ways are there to do the glass fronts? I know you can do sliding glass, but is there a way to attach the glass directly to the front and then just put a door on the top. Like maybe use an adhesive or something? Or maybe I could work it out so the glass slides down in while I'm building it, but it wouldn't slide up and down all of the time.

I'm still thinking of ideas.
