Yeah, I definitely agree! I was advised many times to consider all bare bottom and if I wanted plants to put them in solitary pots. I don't like that... I know I'd personally be bored to tears if I had to live in an apartment with no furniture, furnishings or anything - just carpet and walls.

I think I found a happy medium by keeping my driftwood, rock cave, and plants on tiny islands of surrounding gravel. The rest of the tank is bare. It's cool too because with less displacement from substrate it looks a lot "taller"

I'll do the extra cleaning maintenance, I don't mind.
