dcchau ADA60P

I am new to TPT and this is going to my first journal. I have been collecting equipment to start up this tank for a few months.
This is what I have so far:
Tank: ADA 60-P
Substrate: ADA Aquasoil 9L + 3L Amazonia and half bag of ADA Aquasoil Powder Amazonia
Lighting: 24" Finnex Ray 2

Filter: Eheim 2215
Stand: Ikea Besta

Hardscape: 20lb Seiryu stone and petrified wood rocks (thanks nvladik).

I have not decided on what to do with the stones yet.
As for plants I was thinking of staurogyne repens and blyxa japonica

you can make it more shallow at the front and deep at the background. Here is a very good journal about the Iwagumi scape: http://www.ukaps.org/forum/threads/g...allenge.29695/
