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!
