I LOVE your tank and choice of plants! It looks so natural even without live plants :)

But of course live plants are awesome not just because of their looks, but how they improve water quality. I can't say much because all I have are silk plants, lol.

Thanks! I always try to decorate my aquarium as realistically as possible. I think it looks best that way!
My main motivation for live plants is pretty much to replicate as close as I can the natural environment of the fish. Plus they look really cool! Alas silk plants will have to do the job for us!

Smile My new setup!

It's a filtered, heated, 8 gallon (30 liters) aquarium with different types of gravel and two basic plants. It is divided with a piece of wood and a net spread from one bamboo to another, so the bettas (male-left, female-right) can not swim to each others sides of the tank. There are also 6 neon tetras that can swim wherever they want, since they can go through the net, but they prefer staying with the female. I also have two Ancistruses and I'm about to go get a snail. I try to keep it neat and simple.

I only use silk plants for now but I will get live plants eventually. I have a ton of silk plants for my future sorority tank that will fill the space as the plants grow in. None of them are really natural looking, lol. I was really going for utility rather than looks.

I want the sorority tank to be heavily decorated enough for the girls but I'm getting live fast growing plants to help with the water quality. I'm not really too concerned about fancy aquascaping, lol, but maybe someday I will be.

I want to go to college for photography and something to do with animals. Maybe I'll be a zookeeper at a zoo. Or a marine biologist. I don't know, ha. But maybe I could do something like the two guys on the show Tanked :p
