This is Primus' set up. He has a 5 gal tank, heater, thermometer, filter with baffles (intake and out flow), live plants, and decorations. He had a pet pleco (Duo) but duo apparently had velvet... in a fairly advanced stage by the time I figured it out... So Duo is no longer with Primus and I. I treated the tank and Primus is frisky as ever.
I'm going to have to add some cheese cloth or something to the sponge baffle on the out flow because Primus can see his reflection on the front of the filter and flares and such. Which would be OK except that the sponge is rather course and I can see where it has been shredding his dorsal fin a little.
After Duo we got four "ghost shrimp". Two of which are now in solitary for crimes against the tail fin. I caught them swimming after Primus and pinching his fins. So I'm not so sure if they are ghost shrimp or just mean ghost shrimp.
Primus has really brightened since I bought him. He has a lot more iridescent turquoise now. Oh! I can not resist: here's a pic of Primus. Attachment 60490
That plant with the stripes on the right hand side, isn't an aquatic plant... So it will rot/die and cause water quality issues. Sorry you bought a plant that isn't aquatic, when I first started I made that mistake too.
