Lightbulb dirted tank help

I am wanting to set up a dirted tank to grow live plants in I want to use a twenty gallon high tank and breed a few different fish in it so I will need hiding places for the babies I want to plant it densely in the back and on the sides and have some short plants that look like grass on all the other places I don't remember what they are called I also want to make the grass plants grow without water in the tank because I read it makes it look nicer can I use regular top soil from the hardware store or does it have to be special dirt? I am going to put some walmart fish gravel on top that is smaller than regular gravel I also don't want those little annoying snails can I get out of having those? Thanks Roadkill

when you go to put the water in do it very slowly about half way then plant the mess out of the tank and after that fill the tank up, you might have to do between 2-4 water changes to get the water clear.
