"The Talking Tree" Tank



187 Lts - 50 Gals

The Talking Tree

I made this tank for a client that didn't want real plants. It's a common opinion that plastic or artificial plants look ugly in the aquarium... But, sometimes, you need to deal with them. In this case, the person who ordered this design, hadn't any time at all to take care of real plants, but he wanted a special tank. I started by choosing two big Savanna branches; I had the idea to create a kind of forest look, so I adjusted the plastic plants on the top of the "trunks" as if they were actual leaves and I covered the back side of the tank with artificial Cabomba-looking plants. The result, as you can see, is very peculiar.
