    Look up some aquascapes... I like Biotope tanks myself... Amazon Swords are a must have in any South American Biotope tank...

    Amazon Swords
    Pygmy Chain Sword
    Micro Sword
    Java Fern
    Crypt (Wendtii) - Not South American but easy to keep and adds nice color

    Depends, it's mainly to your taste and dependant on your wpg and whether or not your going to use ferts & co2.

    Also, sand isn't the best substrate for a planted tank...but it can work for most (not "great" at holding stems in place).

    Also, if going planted I'd recommend getting the plants in there first and giving them say about 2 weeks to get there roots started.
