damn that flower bucket is a goood idea!

thanks i am enjoying it, i feel like a mini forest garden that is just let run wild.
dont mind the sun shade back drop we view our tanks from both sides as this sits near a pony wall to the other room.
the lack of maintenance and easy of upkeep is what i really like. heck i don't even scrub the inside glass, i let the clean up crew do all the work.
