Completely re-did this tank last night. I also moved it off of the oversized stand and onto my desk.
I've never really tried an iwagumi-style aquascape before, so i figured this would be a good tank to experiment with because of it's small size. I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out-- just need for the HC to fill in, and it should be golden!
I thought about putting some dwarf hair grass in the back left, but i think i'm going to try the full HC carpet first, and if i don't like it, i can always add some grass or stems to the back. I've always been a huge fan of minimalistic aquascapes, so i hope that it will look fine with just the HC.
I plan on adding a group of ruby tetras (Axelrodia riesei
) to this tank once it is fully cycled and grown in.
And yes, i know the electrical outlet and black trim make for a HORRIBLE
background, but i plan on purchasing a frost-like transparent material to allow for light to shine in and through the back glass, but also to hide the stuff on the wall.
