Hi guys! I'm cycling my 20 gal currently and when it's done I wanted to do a Twin Peaks theme. I'm thinking about some sunburst mickey mouse platys for the "fire walk with me" symbolism. I also wanted some algae eaters (considering it's close to a window), and some plants, any ideas for those? I also have this cool log decoration that reminds me of log lady :)

I so hoped this was about the tv show instead of a scape with two mountain peaks in it. So happy when I saw the fire walk with me reference. The best I can come up with for algae eaters are cherry shrimp (for the number of cherry pie references in the show). Some sort of Wrapped in Plastic nod would be awesome if you can pull it off.

Cherry shrimp would be so cute, I love them! Although, I've never owned them before so I wouldn't know how well to take care of them. My cousin is an artist, and a huge fish person too, and is going to paint me a background for it!! She had in mind a forest with mountains hiding in the background, and when you get close to the tank and really look into it you can see the them. Also, do you have any suggestions for plants, I was thinking vallisneria, only because it drapes over the top and would be a cool shadowy effect

I wouldn't be the one to answer how to pull it off, but maybe an underwater pine tree using bonsai?

Be really cool if you could like do only black fish and white fish to represent the Black and White lodges.

Yeah! I was thinking about some nerite snails because they have stripes on them, kinda similar to the jagged black and white floor of the Red Room
