-60x35x35 cm Optiwhite tank
-Eheim 2215
-Hagen glo 2x24 W T5 power glo tubes
-Dragon Stones (Ohko stones)
-Cat litter and sand 1,2 - 3mm

I've noticed nearly all the Iwagumi setup videos on youtube are set to music. While cool to watch, I'd also like to see some instruction type vids. I know it isn't rocket science, but still, some commentary would be nice once in awhile.

But otherwise, nice videos.

Thank you for your nice comments! As this is my second real aquascape, I don't really have that much knowledge to inform people how to do things. But I might do a video with commentary later, when I'm creating a new scape

You don't have to "inform" people. Without talking, you're doing perfectly fine. Very nice video. If people want to know, they can always ask you. Keep it up. Btw, what's your substrate? I see kitty litter at the bottom, right? If it's really "sand" only, I am curious how the growth will be.

Yes, it's cat litter at the bottom, just a thin layer and the rest is sand.
