what size tank ??

substrate........fine natural gravel as dark as you can find..
lighting.......standard lighting is fine if you don't want to spend a couple of grand...
plants......nice easy to do low light plants that i prefer....java fern and anubias..do not plant ; attach to a piece of driftwood or rock....cryptocoryne are beautiful little plants and they will propagate for you nicely...many different species of them..

you can get anything you want , at alice's restaurant.....
no wait , that's a song....lol

try www.aquabid.com
