One of my favorite tanks to watch is my angel tank with Rummynose Tetras, Harlequin Rasboras and cories. It has a sand substrate with a few Anubias plants tied to a large piece of driftwood and some tall fake plants. It's very peaceful and serene to watch and is a real stress reliever. Cardinals or neons would also be nice. But as stated check your water for Ph and hardness. You may be able to ask the local water company for these numbers.

I can find gravel here, but i cant find aqua soil or any of those kind of substrate. I like planted tanks very much too. I will planting some but not heavily.
yeah I was planning to have a driftwood as well. Cant miss that!

excellent news! A lot of people have planted tanks in normal aquarium gravel. If you get heavy root feeding plants like Swords, you might just have to add a few root tabs to the gravel. Hopefully your LFS will have a lot more of the things you need then you thought. Good Luck.

As 1077 mentioned, sand looks nice.

You could call your water department and ask them your ph...
Some pharmacies sell litmus paper for testing ph, you could use that just as well.
