And any plant recommendations
Both for in the water and above as I'm doing a vivarium setup so the archerfish can do what makes them so awesome.
As far as fish that would like in the same biotope and inhabit the bottom, Burmese Border Loaches could be an option. I know there are quite a few other loach species from that area of Myanmar, but I do not know their exact names. Many are uncommon in the hobby.
For plants, Acorus Japanese Sweetflag is an excellent marginal plant that will grow quite well right at the waterline. I Think it would achieve the look that you are going for.
