+1You do realize that to keep artificial plants looking nice and healthy you need to feed them artificial plant food at least once a month?
One of the nest parts of this hobby is that only one person ever has to look how any of their tanks look and that is the tank owner. It's like art one person love it and another hates it. It has nothing to do with the art, it has to do with the observers.
Much of the benefits of live plants are also gained from artificial ones as well. Only the ability pf the pants to affect the water parameters is the difference.There are benefits to artificial plants. They look the same all the time, they never outgrow the look you wanted and they never need to be pruned or fertilized. Lighting doesn't matter to how they do either. Then there is the fact that one cannot have live plants in those tanks where the water parameters from one's tap will prevent them from doing well. Finally, one can put artificial plants into tanks with plant eating fish
The tank looks just fine to me. But then my opinion doesn't really matter.
