Show off your heavily planted tanks!

Hi all, I will eventually switch out all the fake plants in my 30 gallon and then add lots of live plants. Show off your heavily planted tanks! I need inspiration!

You might think they are ugly, but that's so much better than anything I could do!

In the meantime while you are waiting, you CAN make an all fake plant tank look nice. It just takes time and planning.

The only thing real in this tank is the driftwood. I don't have time right now for the planted tanks I once used to keep.

Agreed with hpiguy. Something to consider is using fake plants that mimic the red that high light plants produce. If you mix that in with low light real plants you can really pull off a pretty aquarium.
