This is my first aquarium.

It is a 10 gallon, Top Fin Starter set. With 2 silk, 2 plastic, and 3 live plants.

The pottery used are clay terra cotta purchased fresh from wal-mart, and some drift wood.

The substrate is all gravel, some colored, and some natural.

The aquarium is currently home two 4 female bettas (varieties of which, I have not yet identified), and one ghost shrimp, the plants are 1 Mondo Grass, and 2 Sword Plants.

By all means. Imitation is the highest form of flattery.

I borrowed the terra cotta look from plenty before me, who I am sure borrowed it from others as well. The only original thing that came to me was putting plants in them, and giving them a look as though they fell out a window, etc.

I am still a little bit leery about them. I had to put much more gravel than I had previously planned, as one of my more beautiful bettas got stuck in the drain hole (a little bit of research on this matter would have resulted in this *not* happening), and was stuck there for a good hour, and suffered a terrible gash on top and bottom.

Be very careful with this look. Either take the entire bottom out of the terra cotta pot, or seal up the drain hole completely. I wish I did, and I am positive "Flo" does also.

Cbirk, I really dig your floating bowl in Cichlid idea.

How do you have the bowl arranged? How is the substrate built to keep it floating? (Do you have plastic "steps" and then just substrate on top of that?)

I saw a reef-shelving system at the LFS the other day, that made me imagine having a couple small 5 gallon aquariums shelved inside of a 40 gallon tank.

That's awesome!!! You should add foil to the back of the tank, it'd make it look SO cool!
