  1. Question "redecorated" my 29g tank recently


    0 Not allowed!
    WOW sorry for the huge pic, I don't know how to scale it down since I have stupid windows 8 now and can't figure out how to do anything on it! What do you think though? The plants are mostly silk fakes that I bought at LFS as I am HORRIBLE with keeping real plants alive. I think they look ok though? I also have a large piece of treated driftwood soaking that I really want to put in there but it just will not sink for anything! Guess it'll just keep soaking for now. Looks like most of my fish are hiding in this pic, camera shy ;)

    If you had not said the plants were fake, I don't think I would have known. I had to take a 2nd look! Very nice!!!

    Thank you! It's a work in progress, hoping to get the driftwood in there once it sinks (though it's a pretty big piece and might not look good, we'll have to see...)

    For having mostly silk plants, your tank looks amazingly natural. Goes to show how lifelike good quality artificial plants can be these days. A far cry from the tacky old plastic ones which used to be commonplace. A lot depends on placement, composition, and variety, all of which you've nailed. If I were you, I wouldn't interrupt that with a huge piece of driftwood. This is very nice just as it is.

    Thank you, I appreciate the compliments :) I think my favorite thing about keeping fish is decorating the tank, trying to get a natural look. I agree on the artificial plants being much better these days- I'm sure I'm guilty of having some of those tacky plastic plants, ohhhh...about a decade and a half ago, lol. I was amazed when I found the silk ones and how nice they turned out!

    I think you're right about the driftwood... I've been thinking about it for a couple of days and I don't think it's necessary either. The main reason I was going to even add it was just for my clown pleco. I've had him for over a year and he's been eating algae wafers...but then I was told they feed on driftwood as their main diet so I feel I've been depriving him It is still a cool piece, and I spent close to $30 on it. Maybe I can return to the lfs for store credit, hasn't been in my tank yet.
