Aqua Forest Aquariums are Gorgeous!

Yup, they're real aquariums!

George and Steven Lo of Aqua Forest Aquarium in San Francisco make aquariums - but not just any ol' fish tank. Their creations of "Nature Aquariums" are simply stunning: real plants are used to create a natural (albeit underwater) diorama.

I agree with Lea on snails: pretty much all aquatic plants bought from stores will have snails. I used to treat the plants with potassium permanganate before putting it into my tank.

If you have a snail infestation, it's quite difficult to get rid of. For mild infestation you can float a piece of lettuce - snails will flock to the lettuce. Simply float new lettuce leaf every few hours or every day until you don't have snail anymore.

I've seen something like this before. They're beautiful. Be careful with snails though. They breed like...well...certainly more fruitfully than rabbits. I bought two for my mom's aquarium and had a couple hundred in a week...

I have slowly lost several aquariums to algae and disrepair over the years- as amazing and beautiful as these are, I don't think I could ever trust myself to keep them looking like this! Very cool find, guys.
