UPDATE 09-26-10

Now I have couple of bamboo poles that are somewhat hiding the airline tubes. As you can see, I definitely need some foliage on top and will be working on that.



CLOSE UP
(Water looks murky, I should of soaked these in water for few days. My babies are fine, in case you are worried.)



Another update coming tomorrow as I'll be playing with the arrangement of plants.

I had some devil's ivy (also from Ikea) in the room. Good thing about these plants are they can grow in water. Since inside the bamboo poles are filled with water, I put few of the devil's ivy in and already it is starting to look better. Now I need more volume.

Looking good. Can't wait to see the finished product. I'd love me one of those!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

That is an awsome idea! I would love to do something like that I think it would be cool in the living room for my betta.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Just to give you guys an update, I'm still working on my project... Believe it or not.... I've been adding and removing stuff so many times, and had a major issue with my vase tank. The tank started to smell like sewage because of the water inside the bamboo poles had no place to flow . BUT, I figured out a way by happy accident and hope to have some more pics and an update.
