I am looking into getting a 12 gallon tank, and thinkin of making it a biotope tank. I am thinking of goin either asian or brazilian. The tank is 21w, 11.5d, and 17.5h. Would another biotope b better since it is talller?

well, without the correct types of real planting, then its not a biotope is it....
a 'biotope' exactly replicates a piece of natural environment.
fake plants dont require any 'maintanance' and they do nothing good for the aquarium!
if you insist on using fake plants tho, get some plastic rocks, and some fake wood pieces, and you could have a 'plastic biotope' with some plastic fish. will be very low maintenance, no need to feed, no need to clean it either.
lionhead, if you seriousley ever intend to be a successful fishkeeper you need to get your head around this, coz its obvious that you arent fully understanding the best way to keep fish.

Ok, ill only look into egg layers then, that way to avoid babies. I've been doing a lot of research on the tank i am looking at (eclipse system 12) it says to use a 50W bulb, will that be enough to keep the plants thriving? If not which bulb should i get?
