I know, but planted tank needs more attention...moreover, the shape of the fish tank would not look good for planted...

I have an odd shaped tank, (1' X 2' (height) X 1') where I'm planning for a Neon Tetra set up. It would be a non-planted tank.
Can somebody help me with necessary requirements to set it up. Here are few questions I have :
1. Can I have undergravel filter, I'm planning for stones/gravels only and not Sand or Soil
2. How many neons can I think of in this shape of fish tank
3. can I keep some other fishes as well, if yes, please suggest food also
4. Most important, what food do neons eat, any which I can get from LFS or Galiff
5. what filtration?
6. do I need a cover for the tank, I don't have any currently
7. Lighting? I have a UV tubelight, is it ok?
8. Would I need heater for Winter

As for substrate, you can go for 1-2 mm gravel, since you're not interested in sand or soil. These plants doesn't require any co2, or liquid ferts. These will also give those tetras some hiding places. Buy a tank cover, since neon tetra's jump often. Also, go for a HOB filter which will give you more space inside the tank. Since summer is almost here, for the time being you don't require and heater, but after summer, buy a good heater and keep the temp within 24-26C. I feed mine with tetrabits, dried bloodworms, earthworms (cleaned and chopped) and dried tubifex.
