What keeps Patrick from falling off the roof of the Krusty Krab? ;-) That was a good idea to put all the tall plants behind the ornaments, and the short plants up front, interspersed between them. Squidward's house looks funny with plants in front of the door/mouth -very cool! Would love to see a close-up photo of the "very old pleco" - maybe then somebody can give you a more positive ID on the exact species.

Ya' know, I gave this a 5 star rating because I looked at it and was automatically transported back to my cartoon watching days. I love it, very creative.

I love it ;) I wish every kid could design and photograph their own tank. It's very colorful and happy! It makes me smile. Great job kid!

I've always wanted to do a Spongebob tank.The multi colored rocks look good in there. It's nice to see a fun tank that's not so serious or demanding. We are never too old for Spongebob!!!
