I'm not sure. I've only tried Anacharis (died), a Marimo Moss ball (died), and Moneywort (thrived). I don't have much experience! But I've heard Java Ferns are really easy to care for!

"wow thats alot of water changes. Look great tho."- elsilerjr

To elsilerjr: Yes it's a lot of water changes (but it gives me a workout for lifting especially in the legs, hehe! My muscles was sore from all the water changes over the weekend). It was one of my big last purchases before tying the knot and before my money becomes "our money." They're all mini bows and was on sale at the time and so I didn't pay full price for them. I have also put fish in those 2.5 gallon rectangle glass, but my fishes don't thrive so well in there.

I also have a 20 gallon tank community (6 girls, one snail, 1 froggy and 2 ghost shrimps) and a 10 gallon divided tank( 3 guys). My husband has a 14 gallon tank (only mollies and some ghost shrimp).

But I think I'm at my cap now. Its a lot of work but its so rewarding to see the fishies.

Here are some examples, a mixture of the 2 would look cool small scale. Live plants aren't really that hard... just choose easy ones like anubias, mosses and stemmed plants and you'll be fine. Trimming will be important.
Put smaller plants in the front and larger ones in the back, it's nice to have a natural focal point like wood or an interesting rock.
These are mostly easy to care for plants so if you see one you like I'll try to identify it for you.

I am going to add more colorful pebbles when I get the chance.... What else do you guys think I should add?

Oh. I ended up buying the Eclipse Hexagon 5 gallon because the other tank I wanted had a stronger flowing filter that wouldnt work very well for housing bettas... soooo... here it is
