Just a little tidbit on the gardening I'm more familiar with

Fish tanks.

Yes, I have been a fishkeeper for over 15 years. My pets are the goldies. My ornamentals are the freshwater tropicals.
I don't bother with saltwater because, although they are beautiful, I don't have the time or the money for the purchase and maintenance of saltwater tanks.

Freshwater, on the other hand, can be just as rewarding and pretty.

My tropical tank is planted with a small variety of easy plants; Java Fern, Wisteria, Anubias Nana, Anubius Barteri, Anacharis, and a couple of Tiger Lotus bulbs. I will add pictures later.

My goldfish tank is unplanted with only rock ornaments and some driftwood. I am not being neglectful by not decorating much, I am being realistic. They have destroyed every plant I have put in their tank; even an Amazon Sword plant... even Java Fern that was embedded and growing lushly from driftwood... even plastic plants!
They either uproot and toss them so they float around, or they peck at them until there is nothing left but bare sticks. Trying to keep plants in that tank is an expensive insanity. Forget about it! They are perfectly content with the ornaments they have and the ability to watch tv with me, although I think they prefer my husband's taste in movies.
