I consider this tank to be a random garden of sorts. It has ground cover, "full sun" and "shade" areas, as well as a nice mix of plants. I had started it with just a few plants, as you'll see in the first pic. As I got in plant orders for other tanks, I took the extras, random tag-alongs, and trimmings and planted them in this tank.

Specs
Tank: 5.5g standard
Lighting: 13W CFL + 3.2W LED + Early morning sunlight in front right corner
Substrate: Hyponex Potting Soil + Play Sand
Filtration: None, just an airstone
Fauna: PFR Shrimp
Flora: Italian Val, Cabomba, Taiwan Moss, Java Moss, Round Pellia, Java Fern, Crypt, Anacharis, Notocyphus lutescens, Hydrocoytle sibthorpioides, Rotala Rotundifolia, Dwarf Hairgrass

looks like Bikini Bottom:proud:
I've been so thinking about getting a pineapple house and a small Gary (the only Spongebob character I can stand, a snail that meows!!) statue for one of the tanks :)

But I can completely see how that terra cotta cave with the Anacharis looks like the pineapple house, lol
