I was working on a zen theme for my 10 gallon I am working on but with all live aquatic plants. Unfortunately I do not have the best green thumb and all my plants are dying in that tank. However my other 10 gallon is like a jungle.
I have seen some discrepancy about placing real bamboo in tanks though. Some say it can cause problems with the water and will rot. Fake bamboo should be fine though. :)
