Need some good old fashion creativity!

Hey everyone. I found this cool tank at a store nearby and at first it looked really bad with a big black frame that covered 30% of the tank up. It also had this water spotted blue background. After some fixing up and maybe a small cut or two here she is.
Name:  2.3 gallon.jpg
Views: 230
Size:  25.8 KB
She is a 2.3 gallon thats 18" long 4" wide and weighs in at a depth of 9". I really dont have any idea what to stock or scape her with. I just thought the narrow length would be interesting. So please feel free to take a moment from you possibly busy day and imagine something wonderful for me to have : ) Ha Ha. Also, recommendations on filter and heater. Go Crazy!

I was going to mention that I would like a planted tank of course. How heavily planted would it need to be to sustain itself (after maturity)? stocking shrimp or snails, or is it just too small?

Ooh that would be one killer shrimp tank but that's just one thought...also maybe like a 2D aqua-scape? Thin pieces of wood so it looks like a landscape portrait like this?

Heck you could do something like this if you feel ambitious:

I don't think upside-down tanks ^ ^ are a good idea for Bettas, as there is no open space for air at the top of the upside-down part. If your fishy didn't understand how to get back out, or was having swim bladder issues, it could suffocate. for non-anabantids though, great idea!

Though I agree, the one you've got would make a killer NPT!!!
