Smile contest entry???

So I'm a new betta fish owner and just starting off my tank. I haven't got a water heater yet ..so I just keep my room warm and that tends to help. The plants I had in my tank before I took out..because they were plastic and seemed to be giving my betta more harm than good..like I said I'm a new betta owner and am still learning but any and all advice or suggestions would be much much appreciated!!!

Photo of tank: Don't have the tank yet! I'm going to be buying a 10 gallon to divide and bring with me to college! I really want to plant it.
Why you want to start off a heavily planted tank: The plants would improve the crappy New Jersey water quality, and it would provide my fish with a lot of cover and hiding places. I've also never had a planted tank before, and I've been researching, and I definitely would like to give it a try.
What's your lighting? I don't have the light bulbs yet, as I don't have the tank yet. I'll be buying them when I buy the tank. :)

I would really like to have a planted tank. I'd love for my fish to live happier and healthier lives by having more hiding places and better water. :)

I will pretend what the other ones are I am a horticulturist and water plants are hard for me to identify. xD

Why you want to start off a heavily planted tank: My 3 larger tanks are moderately planted and look great! I'm really wanting to do it with my smaller tanks as well, but all the extra plants I have go back into my larger tanks so I can make them more heavily planted
What's your lighting? 1 10w 6500k CFL in the hood

I should add, that this is a 2.5, but I have 4 of them that I'd really love to plant, all are just as sparsely planted as this one is. When I change the substrate out on the big tanks to NPT style, I'll be changing it on these as well.

Why do I want to start a heavily planted tank? So our fish will feel more comfortable. A group of our female guppies are hiding in the plastic plant that the pleco uprooted to hide from the males.

What is our lighting? 1 Eclipse "Natural daylight" F15T8 18" in the hood

Why you want to start off a heavily planted tank: Earlier this year I got hooked on having a planted tank. I have been slowly learning and adding plants to my tank. I would so love to have a nice full and lush tank for my betta and snails to explore.
What's your lighting? 57 LED's with a 6500k color temp and 9 original 3-chip LED's unknown color temp.
