I am a pet groomer. The last 20 years of my life I have been been lucky enough to have a job where I could follow my passion about animals and taking care of them. Some of them from the beginning of their life until the end of it. As much care as it takes to handle sick or elderly pets it does not exclude the chance to make each of them a beautiful soft, sweet smelling work of art!
I don't see why setting up a beautiful aquarium centerpiece is any different. Being able to blend it to your own surroundings while at the same time providing a healthy happy enviromment for the fish inside. We are able to use creativity and decorations and lighting and plants to weave in a safe, comfy, happy, clean home with all the things that make fish happy. A healthy aquarium does not have to be a glaring eye sore in your home (which a bright blue tank would be in mine!)
If you create something beautiful, you will be more passionate about taking care of it too.
Btw, I have read as many stories about fish loving those bubble walls, hanging out near them and playing in the bubbles, as I have dire warnings about how the stress will kill them.
