Planted tank for my Grandma

Hi,

Well after looking at my tanks my Grandma has decided she wants one. Do any of you have any ideas about an easy to maintain tank? I am thinking a 10 gallon with a few hardy plants and a school of tetra's.

Let me know what you think because she really would enjoy having her own.

Natural-style tanks are very easy. No water changes or really any maintenance at all.

Get some crypts, java ferns, water sprite, and maybe some hygro. They will all grow well in a tank with topsoil that gets some daylight.
