I recommend amazon swords for sure. They get big and are relatively easy to keep. Fluval substrate has worked great for me in the past. Some snails will start the cycling process (I recommend only getting a few and buying different types to help prevent to much breeding) and neon tetras or cardinal tetras might be pretty. I would have the tank at max 80 degrees with 2-4 discus.

What about more hardy fish. Like Mix Danios with amazon swords tank or Barb with with some Dwarf Gouramis? Then Cory Cats and some plecos. What about some live plants?

Danios would also be really good. Cory catfish would go great with them Black skirt tetras would also be good and are very hardy. Platies Mollies and Sword tails would also be a great edition. Plecos are probably not ideal for this situation. Java fern are usually pretty easy to keep. Any type of Amazon sword like micro swordsis good really. So are white ribbon plants. I got one about a month ago and its been thriving. For carpeting I would use torn up moss balls or Christmas moss. I haven't tried either yet but I have heard Christmas moss in particular is very easy and moss balls, while need to be tied onto wire at first are very easy to maintain afterwards.

Thank You for your help. He had and like Betts. What about a tank with a M betta. What would you say be good fish to keep with one.

Or might to a Angle or a tiger barb tank.

I would add neon tetras with a male betta. If you have a lot of them they usually won't harm them. Guppies with short tails might also be okay if the betta fish is not very aggressive. Tiger barbs are very nippy so I don't recommend them with angelfish.
