Here's my 5gal Betta tank featuring Rufus. I didn't realize the pic was so blurry but it was a cell phone, so there you go!

I've got the ubiquitous Crypts and Anubias with Pothos houseplant growing out of the top. A friend gave me a piece of red glass she found in her garden near the Corning factory in New York State.



Here's the 45 gal goldfish tank in the waiting room at work. I recently added the large calico, it outgrew a friend's tank and is happy as a clam at work, and the patients enjoy looking at the tank while they wait. I turned off the bubble wand for the pic, but the bubbles add visual interest since our wait times can be lengthy! It is oriented in the corner and there is a tall silk ficus behind it instead of a background. On the bottom right is a large mat of Anubias, which the goldfish have not yet begun to much upon. Only a matter of time....

RylandVT might recognize the golden mystery snails cruising around!

cheers Cheers on the great goldfish rescue, Liz!  It's a beautiful well-finned fish, just the right size atm for this work tank.  All is looking really good!

Gheeeez... you can even make a 5 gallon look like a million dollars Smile

I bet the tank at your office is a nice feature, aquariums certainly have the calming effect.

NICE JOB - Thanks for sharing!
