You should totally see my 15 gallon, then. It's full of green painted walls.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

Never thought about the smiley faces, but now I am totally going to do that. I personally like waking up and seeing the snail art:



I call this one "Muddy Rain." I have a little bunch of Dali kids in my tank.

If you ever want any free paintings, I'll be glad to send you some of my little artists! It kind of reminds me of one of his later pieces: Cutlet and Match - The Chinese Crab. I like some of Pollock's work, especially this one. I didn't like his more well known paintings until I saw one in person at the Metro in NYC. It brought strong feelings to my inner being. (Yeah, a little too deep, lol.) Actually, I used to want to be an artist before realizing I had no talent.

i can see the resemblance to the dali painting!

That pollock painting isnt the typical looking one that comes to mind when i think of him. i really like the large ones like this.
mural

as for dali, i like the really bizarre. beans
i really love surrealism.


i let oliver pick out his first fish today. he wanted a big blue one like daddy's but he settled for a betta.

he has a little 2.5 NPT with some java fern, m. quadrifolia, and wild collected F. fontanus.


heres after a glass cleaning.

So I know I am supposed to be paying attention to your tank, but that boy of yours is too cute to ignore. A fish just like Daddy's. Awww!

Told you it reminded me of Dali. He's always intrigued me. Anyone that can sport a mustache like that is A-okay in my book. Funny, surrealism is one of my favorites. Do you like Yves? My favorite, by far. Some of the stuff is a little too graphic for the forums, so I'll let you google.

Yeah, I totally like Pollock's less known paintings. They are more emotional for me. I like all arts on a gut level, not really a practical one.

Onto the tank, it is fantastic. I don't know why you don't think your tank isn't fabulous. It's one of my favorites, definitely in the top three.

thanks for thr compliments on kid and tank! well i guess its because i look at it everyday, and i see the problems that are not apparent in photos.

i do like yves very much so. the one in the link is nuts.

here is a unappreciated art form: the doodle.
