create river tank

hello all

I want to build a stream tank (flow of water) and have searched and searched the net but I haven't found what I want.

True I have found this river tank insert thingy but I don't want to go that route as it seems pretty lame.
I was thinking of a multi level tank with a stream flowing down with pools and a little river perhaps going finally into a large pool at the lowest level of the tank.

I am into loaches so this would be ideal for them. From what i can see I need to build a multi leveled stream flowing from one side to the other side.

The question is what should I build it out of? I found this one guy made a background out of Non-toxic 2-component PU foam.
