 If  u  want  to  develop  a  nature  style  tank,  don't  use  many  equipments,  light  etc.
 Java  moss,  x-mas  moss,  willow  moss,  java  fern,  Riccia  etc.  will  create  an  eye  catching  illusion  and  all  of  these  plants  can  survive  in  low-tech  tank.  U  can  also  use  anubias  family  plants.
 
 Neon  Tetra  will  be  the  best  fish  for  this  setup.  Also  put  2-3  Ottos.

 Try  get  some  low  light  plant.moss  need  low  temperature  below  25  for  lush  growth.fan  can  only  bring  down  a  max  of  2degree.if  the  humidity  is  less  fan  would  be  a  good  option.

 i  have  riccia  in  my  tank  and  i  prefer  it  to  java  moss..since  you  plan  on  having  a  java  moss  wall,you  need  to  have  strong  lighting.let  the  planted  tank  settle  down  with  the  plants  in  it  for  about  a  month  and  then  add  the  fishes.i  dont  think  a  betta  can  do  much  of  a  damage  to  plants.having  co2  would  only  speed  up  your  growth  rate,though  its  not  a  must  but  still  some  plants  cant  do  without  it..fertilizers  are  an  added  advantage..and  of  course,your  substrate..plenty  of  stuff  is  available  like  ada,prodac,laterite  etc..depending  on  your  budget,choose  the  most  appropriate  one  which  fits  you.and  fishes  you  can  keep  all  sorts  of  tetras..ranging  from  neons  to  cardinals  to  ember..
