    I second the advice to bump it up to a 5 gallon and keep only a beta.

    I also commend you for doing your research BEFORE getting you fish. So many others do it in the reverse order. You'll be very happy you took the time to educate yourself.

    I use PFS (pool filter sand)...looks good, easy to plant, no rinsing necessary...comes in a 50# bag for around $6, which would be more than you need, but you will have some on hand for your next tank.

    The anubias, java fern, java moss, jungle vals, and lots of the crypts are easy beginner plants

    Just in case you are not set on the size just yet: a 10 gallon tank makes an excellent first tank. That size is easier than a smaller one to keep your parameters stable.

    Welcome to the AC! Please do continue to ask questions and plan this out. The kind, knowledgeable folks here do enjoy helping.
