I think I'm at a similar stage as you are Art. I usually admire my tanks to the sounds of Elmo, Puffy the dragon or dancing crayons. That of course when my son's not trying to break into the tank stand to get to all the goodies hidden within. When I get a chance late at night, I am happy to just hear the sounds of cooling fans and loaches "tapping" on their pellets.
Well, being an experimental electronic musician myself (10g planted tank and 29g crested gecko terraium accompany me in my studio) some of my own work gets the juices going.
Most sounds found flowing through my speakers when I'm not working on my own musical material include:
1.) Tool (omg, greatest hard rock band to ever exist)
2.) Govinda (electronic/world music based out of Texas... does really good exotic/sensual themed pieces)
3.) Blind Melon (jam band with a slightly rocker/darker theme. Wrote 'No Rain' which was popular circa '94. music vid featured the 'Bee Girl')
4.) Black Crowes (southern blues rock group)
5.) Various electronic non-dance artists, Shpongle, Squarepusher, Aphex Twin, Coil, Nine Inch Nails, Tweaker, God Speed You Black Emperor and many many more
6.) Incubus (acoustic stuff they've done is my fav)
7.) Various hard rock bands like Deftones, A Perfect Circle, Smashing Pumpkins, Janes Addiction etc.
All kinds of stuff. Besides country. I have a strong distaste for country.
Drop me a line if interested in hearing some of my work.
