Once upon a time, far far away; there was a small lonely black moon. No one knew if there was life on this so called moon, but astronomers named this forsaken moon after Tahiti, an Earthly island famous for its black sand beaches. After several years, a team of astronauts was sent to explore Tahiti and bring back some samples they were to collect. Upon setting foot on the black moon, one of the astronauts, Eden Marel gasped at the incredible sight. The moon's surface was a radiant black sand with a few speckles of white impurities here and there and small bodies of crystal clear water filled with life. It was like an odd tropical environment! She whipped out her collection tool and began to harvest some of what there was to take.
The ride home was painstakingly long and when she finally came back to Earth, she gave the researchers their share of her collected specimens and hurried to Petsmart to buy a fish tank and to Target for a lamp. She dumped a layer of the black sand and the water she had collected while on the dark Tahitian moon. Next, she planted the plants and released the aquatic life. She screwed in a 10w light bulb and adjusted the lamp, so the light could be close to the water. She tried to closely replicate what she had seen on that lonely black moon and thus this is how this Tahitian Moon Garden came to be. The End.
