Dearf puffer tank setup?

Hey I'm going to be getting a dwarf puffer soon and I'm not sure how I should set it up. I know it has to be heavily planted and filtered. It's a 5g do you have any tips or examples for me? Thanks

Hi flow filter and dense decor in the form of driftwood, plants, or fake decor. Not much else is needed besides feeding and weekly water change.

I have my DP in a 5 gal with fake plants and rocks. He has a ghost shrimp and 2 otocinclus for housemates. He seems happy as far as I can tell.

If you want ideas for plants, cryptocoryne parava would look nice
