Is there a mini tree(like a bonsai tree) that can grow fully submersed? I think it'd be an awesome part of an aquascape to have an actual tree in there(like a tree beside a creek).

A small manzanita tree with Riccia or moss will work.
A thick stump like wood+Bolbitus also would give a similar feel.

I used to have a plastic bonsai decoration. Looked just like one. No you don't want it? Well that's the only thing :-D. Does bamboo count? Bamboo is partially submergible.

You can take some branchy driftwood sticks and tie moss on the ends. That will give you a bonsai look.

Yes, I was going to say this earlier! I was going to say, you're going to have to DIY your underwater tree, because an underwater bonsai doesn't exist.
Maybe silicone (brown) some Manzanita branches together and then attach moss onto it. I am sure this has been done before..... it is totally possible and I am positive you can achieve the look you are going for, by doing this. Go for it!! :biggrin:

Thanks everyone for all the replies! I love the tree that's at the Aquaticplantcentral.com site, but I think I like the one James from Cali posted the best. I just made my first moss wall for my 3gal, so I should probably see how that turns out before I go attempting a tree:hihi: . Does anyone have a "tree" in their tank? Or maybe a "forest" of "pine trees" like in the one James posted?
