I have this tank that I would like to do a Brazilian biotope for vents in...

Now, I was thinking about maybe some smaller mini-broms attatched to the little jutting piece of wood supported by the PVC/Great Stuff and maybe three or four larger broms on the background. To fill the background space in I was thinking of some wandering jew and a vining fine leaf peperomia... and maybe a fern on the bottom (cryptanthus as an alternate idea?). So, how does this sound?

Any more specific species reccomendations?

You might put the mini broms up higher and the big ones a little lower so that the big ones don't block too much of the light.

B. crispula is a great one from Brazil but it does not like water on the leaves, nor to stay very moist. Needs a bit of a drying-out period. The huge crinkled leaves are awesome.
