They are an investment, but if you get easy plants. It doesn't cost much to have them. I enjoy my planted tank way more then I did when it had silk plants.

Oh and new scaping and deco!

Love having live plants in my tank. You don't even have to have a "planted" tank in the NPT sense of the word, you could simply have a couple in pots and attached to driftwood, and some floaters, and it'd liven up any tank a heap.

This is Perseus`s 5 gallon Lost City of Atlantis home. He has some live plants, floating up at top is the Anacharis and at the bottom in the left corner is his Banana plant and over to the right is a stem with small leaves of Pennywort and a moss balls. I just put in a new Sunlight bulb 6500K so hoping my plants will do better than they have in the past. I won the Lost City of Atlantis decoration for the best Christmas tank and really love it, I think Perseus does too, he can swim though the windows which I made sure where big enough so he would not get stuck. Perseus says peek-a-boo everybody.

I'm got some anubias and amazon sword, but I really, really want an NPT. They look so much better! And I really think Vardaman would LOVE one sooo much! He tries to hide in the plants that he has now. I'd just like to do a NPT in bigger tanks. They are only in 3 gallons.

I've got 3.9 gallon tanks and am attempting kinda-heavily planted aquascapes. Loads of anubias and crypts and a couple of floaters, with tunnels and stuff made out of driftwood (with plants attached) so until you can upgrade, you can play around with the size you've got! Loads of inspiration can be got from searching nano aquascapes, they can be AMAZING!

I'm not sure who it was... Fairly sure there have been more than a few wonderfully done small NPTs on here! Really inspirational.
