my fiance, the master designer

she did WONDERS with this 1-gallon temporary tank that our new female Sigrun http://www.bettafish.com/showthread....61#post1268761 is living in until she's grown enough to live in the community tank (she's only about 3/4 inch now) take a look:

there's water wisteria and primrose, and a plant we've yet to identify that came in an assorted pack from petco, as well as one small "foreground" silk plant. little Siggy loves the ones that are floating at the top, we keep seeing her peek her little head out from between the leaves.

I did the best I could with such minimal space! I do think I did a wonderful job getting all those plants in there, considering it's only a 1 gallon. Not to sound smug or anything, but I always make our tanks beautiful! Homegrown terror usually gives me complete creative license when it comes to all of the decorating. He knows how much I love to pick out everything to go in the tanks and the joy I get from making our fishies a home that they will thrive in. I always have to make sure everything is just right, sometimes to the point that he will start getting annoyed! He'll tell me "It looks great, stop messing with it!" And I'll move something a fraction of an inch and finally say "OK, it's ready! Sorry it took so long sweetheart!" Then I'll smile and give him a kiss and that usually makes his annoyance dissipate. Haha, we have such an amazing time being fishie parents together. Also being parents to our fishie baby that's actually a person, our 11 month old son, Lucian.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone, they are much appreciated!

Yup looks like it is. That was one of the first things that stuck out to me. I would look into getting a new plant. For now it won't hurt, but its going to start rotting.

Good tank though!

that's weird, it's been in our community tank for close to three months and has thrived and even grown a bit. some of the leaves were sticking out over the water level in there, could that have something to do with it?
