Terracotta pots

Hi!

Looking for some aquascaping examples using terracotta pots.

Iíve set up my 120L freshwater and need some inspiration (yet to head out and grab an assortment of goodies).

I crack some in half to look like caves..Others I knock a hole in the side of and place upside down so the hole is only entrance.
I use leaves in most tanks with the pots.
They look good together.
I also add the cocoa fiber pot liners to the same tanks. It is very natural looking and last a long time.
South American dwarf cichlids and other soft water fish love it.

Sounds like a great combo. Would you happen to have a photo of your setup? Also, I havenít used leaves before - any tree species of preference and any I should avoid?
