Oh, and I would vote for guppies for the fish. I really like the colors and they wont be too fast

The first rule of Fight Club is - you do not talk about Fight Club. The second rule of Fight Club is - you DO NOT talk about Fight Club. Third rule of Fight Club, someone yells Stop!, goes limp, taps out, the fight is over. Fourth rule, only two guys to a fight. Fifth rule, one fight at a time, fellas. Sixth rule, no shirt, no shoes. Seventh rule, fights will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule, if this is your first night at Fight Club, you have to fight.

You can say that again. It looks like I'm also going to need special florescent lights...

Yup! Check out the one I've got for my planted 10 gallon. You'll have to change out the actinic bulb for a freshwater bulb, but it's crazy awesome:

Pygmy chain swords are great, they'll fit really well in the 10 gallon.

Thanks for the info, okiemavis. However, I think the plants are going to have to do with something less... expensive. I'm not willing to spend so much money. I set myself an initial setup budget limit of $100, and getting a lamp like that would exceed my budget by a bit.

a good fish to put with the frog would be a 3-5 marble hatchetfish or 3-5 (Nannostomus marginatus) or dwarf pencilfish, those are some fish that can give your tank a little uniqueness. and there not really greedy eaters, a good claener fish would be some ottos, a pair of clown pleco, or a pair of brisltenose plecos. or some shimp, if your want to go with snail i sugest freshwater nerite snials, they wont eat plants and there good algea eaters, anyways good luck with the tank.

I have 10 gallon with 2 ADFs and Harlequin Rasboras and they get along great. It's planted with Anubias Nana, Crypt Wendtii and Java Fern. It's a nice little tank although I'm fighting with hair algae right now.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

Thank you all so much for the suggestions. I finally got my tank set up plants and two African Dwarf Frogs, but I still can't for the life of me choose the fish, and the plethora of great suggestions only makes it harder!
