Personally, I love an all natural looking tank.
Unfortunately my son does not have the same preference and so we have a combination tank at the moment. It has an Ancient Egyptian Ruins theme, but it is planted and has plenty of natural features too, so we're both happy....ish
i love the natural look - the colorful look looks cheesey to me - no offense to anyone who likes that! - but i choose combination because i have a light green plant in my tank with white rocks and a wood looking cave. Miley
I've always been big on a natural environment, especially live plants. However artificial plants now look so natural, I've started to place a few in my tanks. I've seen some tempting resin pieces, like an old car that would offer a safe hiding place. I think my grandson would like it. You have to make it fun for kids. Guppygranny
