Well, this is one post that is very unique. Most setting up new tanks want to do something very elaborate. You on the other hand, are going with the "spartan" look.
After some thought, believe me that is one process that is hard on me, I have come up with some ideas, but I need some more input from you. Firstly, is there a fish that you would favor above the others?
My suggestions would include livebearers. Why? Because they are relatively easy to keep. Secondly, they multiply like rabbits and when it comes time to return them, you should have had a poulation increase. You will have more fish than you started with and should be able to recoup more money.
As far as the substrate, it is dependent on the fish you get. Sand or gravel will both work, but some fish prefer one over the other. One problem with sand, however, is compaction. Make a decision on your fish and then everything else will be relevant to that choice.
