    Hi, welcome to the forum. :)

    For west african biotope, use just some rocks, wood and lots of anubias, with an empty space in the front for the fish to swim.

    For kribs you will need a couple of caves, so a intricate mound of rocks and wood at the back covered with anubias would be perfect. Most African rivers have large trees near by, so they do not need much light.

    i would use red substrate (clay), ADA Africana for example, and wood, lots of wood.

    Manzanita would be good, very intricate.
