I've been trying to Google this, but with no results. I once saw a tank with a shrub's branches reaching out of the water. it created a cool, tree-like effect. it was so long ago now, that I don't even know what it looks like. does anyone know of anything like this, that I could use for my nano tank? a species list, or a link to a website? thanks for the help.

Freshwater, brackish, or full marine?

I haven't been on here in awhile, and I saw your post and noticed that no one really answered you.  I think I know what you are talking about.  There are different woods you can find or purchase.  You can tie plants to the wood to make it look like a live tree.   Be sure to soak your wood for a long time and boil it if you can. I use fishing line in my other tanks. I have a 5g chi cube, it has the filter in the middle.  I would not be able to have a branch be outside the tank.  I have seen some cubes that look fabulous with wood in them. 
I've attached a picture of my cube with java fern, white sand and rocks.  Maybe some day if I find the right wood, I will add it.

You may be talking about Hydroponics....Devils Ivy (Pothos) is probably what you are looking for...

We have to watch to be sure that we are not posting in a quite old thread.

When in doubt, do a water change.
