I'm alittle confused on how aquatic plants come in to play in your project.
Anyways, i suppose if you are planning on doing a bare bones system all you really need are two tanks, two sponge filters, a large airpump designed with two outputs or one with a splitter, a sandy substrate since flounders prefer it and two similiarly sized flounders. I usually see "freshwater flounders" on sale at LFS and as i understand they're actually brackfish/salt water fish that can be kept in freshwater. Anyways, if you find them for sale acclimated to freshwater, you'll have to reacclimate them back to salt. Since your project is a growth rate comparison between fresh and saltwater, feed them both the same type of food to rule that out of the equation.
