Some of you may remember my old 12g Long journal, "Tranquil Valley" Tranquil Valley // 12g Long Iwagumi
. Well I did a complete overhaul this past week and am doing a Malaysian Driftwood Scape. Here is the progress.
After nearly a year and a half or so of having an Iwagumi scape I was ready to change things up in a big way. I was growing bored of just a stone focused scape and wanted to take a stab at using some Malaysian Driftwood. I repurposed my Aquasoil "New" that I had used in my previous scape, and also kept one of the stones that I attached fissidens to, as well as some Rotala Indica (that has lost its indica).

Playing with my wood that I bought from 405 Tropical:
Initial wood placement in tank, with some minor planting.(the hard edge of the large branch on the left is covered/softened by plants)
My mother'in'law checking it out.
Fully planted shot:
None of the fauna is pictured but I will list it anyways.
• 12 Ember Tetras
• 9 Blue Axelrodis
• 4 otos
• 3 Horned Nerites
• 3 Amano Shrimp
Sounds like a heavy bioload, but these are all so small I'm not too worried about it.
• CO2 is being used at 1 bubble every 2 seconds
• 7.5hr photo period
• Dosing, minimal, Seachem Flourish Comp and Seachem Iron as needed, as well as a pump or two of Seachem Excel here and there
