YAY! haha fake plants suck, i hate how some people make having live plants seem like the hardest thimg to ever do when there is actually a whole wack of plants out there that require absolutely no special treatment, and that a beginner can easily handle!

What scares me about live plants is vacuming the gravel and damaging the roots.... I probably do water changes wrong anyway....

@McNerty - your tanks look wonderful and I love the donation tank with the low stand. I should have held out for one of those!!!

Yeah i have a mix of the two in my smaller guppy tank. algae coats them and they look natural enough. i cant wait to see my plants grow instead of get eaten bit by bit.

Thanks paperclipgirl. The donation tank was given to my work a while ago. I work for a not profit that helps handicapped adults. the tank was a mess so we had them sand and paint the stand and im teaching one of the staff how to take care of the tank. the stand is perfect for the guys in wheelchairs. We could never afford a stand like that brand new. plus cinder blocks work too lol
