GOG:

I know silk plants are low maintenance.

For what this is worth may tank is planted

I very much enjoy the "looks" of live plants;
I believe that they are partially responsible for the typical low nitrate concentration in my tank and
By changing the "trimming pattern" of the plants the "looks" of the tank varies.

Several plant which grow to 3' could be placed in the tank as well as the typical 1' and 2' plants.

Do not know that a few floating plants would be appropriate for your tank geometry!

Yes: they are a slight "pain" to maintain in my tank but IMHO way more that worth the effort.

I had a tank just like that, except it was a Hex shape. It's looking pretty good so far. With those kinds of tanks you are limited with aquscaping, don't want to go too overboard otherwise it would be a pain to clean the ground.

How tall is the tank from top to bottom? The one I had I think was 32" or 36". I had to get up on a chair to reach the bottom when cleaning it

What kind of lighting you got for it? Either it's still in the process of clearing up in the pics, or it could use some brighter lights. I'm loving the silk plants though, plans for any real ones?
