Reading material on biotopes.

I am interested in Altum/discus biotopes and I am looking to learn more about them. I see interesting setups like the one below and the one by Panta Rhei. Are there reading materials to better understand biotope setups? I know that discus/altum setups are extremely sensitive and so I do not want to ...

120g drifwood pieces.

I am setting up a discus 120g and would like to add hardscape with driftwood and a large bunch of java fern (needle leaf) tied all along it. Was wondering what's the ecnomical way of going about it? I would like 18-24" pieces with a budget no higher than 40$.
Am I being unreasonable?

DIY moss wall.

Planning to have a moss wall in my Discus tank (85F). Should I use a lighting diffuser or a knitting canvas to mount it?
Any place in DC area where I can find cheap Christmas/Java moss?

ISO Large bunches of java/needle java fern.

I am looking for large bunches of java fern that I can tie to drift wood in my bare bottom discus aquarium 75g.
Where can I get it in bulk in the area/online?
Am not sure what other plants I can look into. Are there stem plants other than hornwort that would go well?

Pond tank.

I have a 24"x24"x12" tall pond tank that I want to grow emersed plants in. I have aiotis and ludwigia as my primary emersed plants. Do any of you know where I can get long (12") stems of purple bamboo (Poaceae Sp)? I am also wondering if Dulichium arundinaceum and Hygrophila Cory...

Re: Lighting pond tank.

Thanks a lot for the reply. I ended up finding a used 4x24" t5HO set up from craigslist. Fit my budget and I would stick with it rather than playing around with LED. There are too many options in LED and too many opinions as a result. T5HOs have stood the test of time and always work, be it for...
