This is the same aquarium that my son set-up two months ago. He changed most of the features, removed the artificial plants and replaced them with live plants. What he did is called aquascaping.

According to wikipedia, aquascaping is the craft of arranging aquatic plants, as well as rocks, stones, cavework, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium—in effect, gardening under water.

A dream come true

My son got his birthday gift in advance – a 29-gallon aquarium complete with plants, hardscape, and other accessories. He’s been requesting for this large aquarium since he got interested in keeping gold fish. Hubby realized this is just the perfect time to give the birthday boy his long-time dream.  Happy birthday, son!
