Holiday themed tanks?

I just saw something over on swap and shop that made me think about trying a holiday themed tank in the future. The offer was for red and green plants, which, of course, would be a christmas theme. This got me thinking, though. Couldn't you do a fall/halloween/thanksgiving themed tank by having all orange/yellow/red plants? It might be a little difficult finding healthy yellow plants, now that I think about it, but you could certainly make it look like autumn trees changing color. You could add maybe an apisto cacatuoides double/triple red to add to the orange theme, maybe some harlequin or espei rasboras for the orange tail.

I believe there is a red white and blue tank in the shrimp forum already, which is pretty neat. I'm not sure how you could get blue otherwise.

Which brings me back to my main point:

Every tank is green, therefore, every day is St. Patrick's Day

There are some plants that are so bright green they are almost yellow. Hygro compact and creeping jenny come to mind...

You could just iron starve your tank?

I think fall colors would be *very* pretty

What about red-green night lighting?

or
Take all the fish out, stick a chiller to the tank, and let the effects of fall take place inside the tank?

It's a wonder that someone hasn't made a tree out of Christmas moss, complete with a star on top and ornaments. It wouldn't be *that* hard to do with a string of glass beads on some fishing line!

Sounds like a project for spypet with his moss ropes and wire!

Ah, great idea, but no room in my tanks. Not only that, not enough xmas moss xD
I'll see if I can scavenge some off my moss wall(very incomplete moss wall that is) and put some in my big tank.
