as far as fake plants go, I looked at my local craft store (hobby lobby is having 50% off all fake plants) the plastic ones tend to look good and I think you could find some "zeny" ones. Just make sure you pull out all the wire, and make sure they wont release dye/toxins

Are you interested in live plants? If so, lucky bamboo would be perfect in a wide, low tank. The leaves need to stay above water, but it would be a lovely set up. Here are some video examples. The first one uses dead/dried bamboo. It eventually rots and can affect water quality.

The second tank is not heated, but you can get the idea of what the real bamboo would look like.

Again, fake plants.

Personally I would go with real bamboo and maybe duckweed or frogbit on the surface. Otherwise the videos give example of fake plants well enough. :)

The dragon is available at Petsmart. It is kind of large... My guess is you would need a 5 gallon tank minimum to fit it. Depends on height, it is a tall decoration.

Like I said about the bamboo sticks (no the live), they will eventually rot. You have to be careful with them.
