I´m thinking of setting up an asian biotop/habitat (preferably south-east asia). Anyone with a bit of experience from this and/or with some cool links?

Rose,

I'm actually considering setting up one of my own. I was going to do Danio choprae and pearl gouramis, maybe some peaceful barbs.

Plants would be Hygrophila (any species) Cryptocoryne (the same) and Barclaya.

It should be interesting.

On the their web page, Tropica describes an expedition they had in peninsular Thailand in southeast Asia. I believe that they saw the following species in this environment:

Barclaya longifolia
Blyxa aubertii
Ceratopteris thalictroides
Crinum thaianum
Cryptocoryne albida
Cryptocoryne cordata v blassii
Cryptocoryne crispatula var. balansae
Cyperus helferi
Hygrophila corymbosa "siamensis"
Hygrophila polysperma
Limnophila sessiliflora (ambulia)
Microsorum pteropus (Java Fern)

It's a pleasant read. :)
