trees - bonsai - lava moss

A DSM (Dry Start Method) will give you a fully carpet quicker/cheaper
So on fill day you can have a well established carpet already

Well worth considering ;)

Fish wise I’m not too keen on Black widow tetra - I was sent some in error by an online retailer instead of black phantoms; the phantoms are much nicer in my opinion.

I like angels but if you do opt for them it will limit the overall impression of your scape - small fish like tetras I believe work best unless the tank is massive. But it’s all down to personal preference!
