Getting a new tank. Need ideas!

So next week I'm going shopping for a new tank. It will be probably be a 3gallon. I need ideas for a theme to decorate the tank. I don't want something that's been done 100 times before and I already have a tank that is asian inspired. Ideas are welcomed!!!!!!!!

Disco, retro, kitchen, childish (ex. Legos, fake crayons and lots of primary colors), love (lots of pink and red, hearts). Hope this helps!

Why not a natural theme? Get a 3 gallon, rock or driftwood, a nice light, some Anubias Nana, and Java Fern and call it good. My Betta LOVES his plants and new tank. He likes to ride the current down the wall and crash into his Echinodorus Osiris, as well as just laying on it.

I thought he would need a cave, but he loves going under and in / out of the leaves in between the stem plants, etc so he is happy as can be.

OR, you could just have fun with it! If you think some statue is funny, put it in! Many tanks are like that, and it will be individual! No two will be the same!

I wanna make my next tank look industrial, have smokestacks, and pipes the betta can swim through and hide in, a little mothballed factory covered in plants ... An old, disused power plant! (The tank I have now is all natural, stones, plants, driftwood, so this will be the complete opposite in essence.)

You could make an old village with a river pretend-powered by a water mill. The river effect can be achieved with different coloured gravel and river stones. The most amazing river/creek bed (and all around awesome tank) I've seen is here:

At about 1.50 he shows the creek bed from the top so that you can get a good look at it.
