    Improvement is always a matter of personal preference:)

    I like the natural look, with tall plants in the back(wisteria is easy) and a few rocks, java fern for fish to play in.

    I also like playing with glass- I have a fishbowl in my Betta tank, and even kept a plant in a vase at one point :) bottles on their sides are cool caves

    Here's a few shots of my tanks over time- you can see if any of my ideas give you an idea of your own:)edb13f3c799897e7546086d6cc846a7c.jpgeaced0c876f33c5bdadb4402e67ca2f7.jpg80afe2e99c4dc924034af6a594f6c755.jpgc9d36464b7c066b73dd8bb17f06342f4.jpg

    Welcome to fish-keeping, and enjoy your decorating!

    I would add loads of live plants. They look great, they won't tear fins, improve the water and the fish really like them.

    Plenty of easy ones too :)

    Wisteria and java fern are pretty much add it and forget it. Java fern should not be buried- tie it to a stone or wood with thread feeds from the water
    The big leafy thing that you see in my tanks is Amazon sword-it likes root tabs, and light but is also pretty easy

    Wisteria really needs no grows without effort, under everything I have offered it

    That's Matt, my monster cat lol. He's as big as the average Jack Russell terrier, and thinks the fish are there to provide him with filtered water and a heated bed

    If you are going to keep the bright colours, glofish might look nice :) Or a Betta

    Something that is bright to match the tank

    Does that cat ever leave the top of the tank. LOL
