I find that bogwood is the worlds greatest cave. I have a coconut cave, but it's more there for ornamental value than for functionality as non of the fish in the tank are real 'hiders'.

A heater is a must if you want Tropicals. If you plan on Trops, then Sparkling/Pygmy gouramis, Ember tetras, and perhaps Glowlight danios are really cool nano fish that would be a nice tank.

OK, I've decided. Carpet of Dwarf hairgrass and cryptocorynes, lots of leaf litter, and the Ember tetra + Dwarf/Pygmy cory fish choice. However, I wait a few months before any fish.
