Pufferfish Setup
 
So i've turned my attention away from a shrimp tank, Right now I just don't think it would be something I would get into, cause I read about the worm issues and well I don't like worms lol.

Anyway I've been focusing on my puffer fish setup and I've come across some plants, wanted to know your opinion on them.

Cryptocoryne wendtii
Cryptocoryne willisii
Cryptocoryne walkeri var. lutea
Aponogeton crispus
Aponogeton rigidifolius
Limnophila aquatica
Cryptocoryne lucens
Microsorium pteropus (java Fern)
Vesicularia dubyana (java moss)

But what are these big leafed plants in the back right? http://www.dwarfpuffers.com/images/5gal.jpg

I think I'm going to go with the Seachem's Flourite Red.
What would be a good way to make hiding places for the DPs other than the plants? Caves? Large Rocks? Driftwood? Which would be more accurate with the biotope?

Would you recommend using a C02 system?

The only thing I couldn't find where floating plants from the Sri Lanka area?

Do you have a link that could help explain what kind of lighting I would need?
What would be your recommendation on lighting?

Thanks in Advance!!

This is a 10 gallon tank.

Are there any bottom feeders like the otto that originates from the Sri Lanka Area?

looks like an amazon sword.

Salvinia is a floating plant from that region i think...

CO2 is usually not really recommended for small tanks, just turn your surface distruption down and it should be ok

Most of your plants will do well in moderate to low light, 1w/gallon at 6500k-6700k should be ok
