Design: Lily Pad and Plant Grass Verified Purchase
I use this tank ornament in 2.5 gallon drum bowls with my bettas... I rotate it through each of my tanks and all of the fish just love it. I was worried when I ordered it online that the whole thing would float, since the plant, in a Fluval, is intended to be mounted upside down (I think)... but actually this is PERFECT for a standard tank this size or slightly larger. Don't buy it for your 1-1.5 gallon; I tried. Plant too big.) At first, placing it the way I wanted it was a challenge. Now I fill the tanks with three or four inches of water, place the ornament, and then pour the gravel in on top of it and spread it out. This weighs down the gridded bottom perfectly. Then I finish filling the tank with water. The two tendrils are absolutely gorgeous and provide a hiding place and as well as an engaging activity for the fish, who love to swim around and between them. It also helps me provide variety in my tanks, since the tendrils can be moved around, lengthened, and tangled gently as you see fit.) They are actually secured with a simple knot to the gridded plastic of the mat, so you can adjust them if you like (I made mine shorter.) They are a smooth, rubbery material that is seamless and provide no threat to betta fins. The leaves in the center are more of a burgundy than a fuscia as seen in the photo, but poseable and the fish like to rest on them. The colors look good with my blue, red, and black/purple fish. The lily pads are simple and realistic, which is nice, so they don't stand out. They give a nice Asian feel to the tank and I still have room to add a rock sculpture, bridge, elephant, or stack of pebbles. I am here now online again looking for similar accessories... I want an orange one! You can't go wrong with this tank decoration!

Design: Large Mountain Verified Purchase
This is a perfect ornament for the Fluval Chi. As mentioned by another reviewer, it seems that people are confusing two separate items. The "Large Mountain" ornament is the larger piece that's meant to be placed in the submerged plant box inside the aquarium; the "Waterfall Mountain" is the smaller ornament that's meant to be placed in the pebble box/topper on top of the filter. Hope this helps!

Design: Boxwood and Tall Grass Verified Purchase
I'll admit, this ornament adds another level of visual appeal. BUT the thing does not sit in the Fluval Chi accessory basket without some form of anchor. I bought this for my Fluval Chi Aquarium Kit, 6.6-Gallon and used a few pebbles from the overflow filter to anchor this bad boy down.

It looks great but it's a hassle to maintain. For example, fish food and fish waste will sink to the bottom of the basket or get entangled in the artificial grass. Sure they will break down overtime, but if you want to keep the tank pristine, it adds another layer of maintenance work (luckily I have an algae eater for this). Depending on how well you maintain your tank, this extra effort could just be a walk in the park. But if you're lazy, these waste may accumulate and ferment into an amalgamation of organic proportion.

Also, if your fish lived its course and dies, it will most likely seek shelter and die in it. I found the rotting carcass of two of my tetras in this ornament - they apparently died and sat in there for a while before I spotted them. When I tried to fish them out, they literally melted on contact. The other fishes began to pick on the disintegrating carcasses, so I guess the cycle of life worked itself out in the process.

The trick to cleaning this bad boi is to "flush it out" with a bucket of water. Suppose you've siphoned out approximately 1/2 of the water from tank, what I do next is take a bucket of water and pour it right into the boxwood ornament and all the hidden fish waste, left over food and debris will come flying out. Then I would siphon out the floating debris.

Design: Waterfall Mountain
I think most of the negative review comments on this piece are due to using it inside the aquarium, a use it wasn't designed for. That is why it floats, doesn't fit, etc. It is designed to be placed on the top of the Fluval Chi aquarium filter box fountain feature, not submerged inside. I didn't give it five stars beacause I prefer natural materials for aquarium decor, especially in the Fluval Chi. Just my preference.

My beta's tank was getting a little blah, so to speak, so I thought I'd spice it up a bit with a new decoration! I have the Fluval Chi 6.6g aquarium and just had some rocks in the basket with a bamboo sculpture in the middle of it. I came to amazon (my go to site that has never failed me) looking for something to spice things up a bit. I saw the Fluval Chi lily pad and plant decoration and thought that it would match perfectly with my beta, Petri. I read some reviews saying that the whole decoration just wouldn't stay put at the bottom and that it would float to the top which made me a bit weary. I decided to purchase it anyways because it just looked so cool and for $10, I figured I wasn't really going to lose much if it turned out to be a dud. Now, two days later, my decoration has arrived! Alas, the reviews about the whole piece floating turned out to be true. Luckily I used a tiny bit of brain power to apply a quick fix and you'd never be any wiser unless I told you. You see, there are spaces at the bottom of the grass piece because the grass "sprouts" in patches, if you will. So the spaces in between the grass are perfect little hiding spots for a few rocks. And as we all know, rocks sink! Ta-da! No more floating decoration. This turned out to be a much easier fix than trying to tie the whole thing down or just tossing it out and loosing $10 bucks. It now looks amazing in my tank and I do believe my beta has a bit of a spring in his swim, thanks to his new, spectacular decoration... (Although that may just be me attempting to apply human-like characteristics to an animal that could care none the less. But hey. At least one of us can truly enjoy it!)
