I know, the purists will hate me for using silk plants at all, for any reason.
I did tanks for a long time and always fully decorated with good quality realistic fake plants because I hate the empty tank look. Then as the tank gets going, I start slowly swapping in real ones. Within a year, all the fakes will be out except for the fake driftwood intermingled with real wood and I'll never have to look at an empty tank waiting for stuff to grow.
