aquascaping ideas for a 10 gal??


I just set up a 10 gallon with a cycled aquaclear30 and filled with 50% water from another tank, 50% treated water.
I currently have a powdered blue dwarf gourami in there, i am going to be adding 5 ghost shrimp, 2 ottos and maybe 6-7 neon tetras.
The substrate is 1.5-2" of flourite and it has a single anubius plant.
what i would like:
lighting- low
plant density- med
small driftwood or rock formation

anyone have some aquascaping ideas and plant list??

I would keep it simple. A 10 is not a large tank.
One rock, or a small group, but not lots of rocks scattered all over.
OR
One branch of driftwood, that might have a couple of off shoots, but is not the massively twiggy tree-like driftwood that gets too busy in a small tank.

Choose perhaps 2 or 3 species of plant. Low in front, highest in back corners, some showy plant, perhaps your Anubias, attached to the branch of wood.
