Also, could people let me know about Internet plant distributers that you've used and are good? Thanks.
As this is a 10g tank, i would not recommend Zebra Danio. They need a group, 6 or more, and being active they need space to swim. You can read more in our profile, click the shaded name.
For a 10g you would want less active fish. Rasbora, many of the tetra or other characins like pencilfish, some of the dwarf species of rainbowfish, Endlers Livebearer, etc. Many of these are in our profiles.
And no, plants do not need to be acclimated, though they may need to adjust to different water or light, but just put the Water Sprite in the tank floating and leave it. Did we mention fertilizer? Seachem's Flourish Comprehensive Supplement is best, a small bottle, you use very little. Make sure it is the Comprehensive, they make several different products under the Flourish name.
