I know that there's much taller aquariums, but here's my 10G Half Moon which is pretty tall for its capacity. I went with a minimalism look. I just set it up and I'm looking to still add 10-12" tall plants in the background. Perhaps some Java Moss on the branches. But what I really enjoy is the branches that angle upward taking up the the vertical real estate.

I'm not sure what kind of wood it is. However, it wasn't cheap at around $20. I bought it in California at a LFS named Nature Aquarium in Santa Monica. I'm not sure what part of Cali you're from, but if you're close to there, you should check them out.

I have all these floating plants to keep my female bettas from torturing each other and it ends up looking too busy. Following this thread for more ideas!
