I am planning to do an ADA 60-F this year and I want to do it right (best hardware and overall best "polished" look) so it will be quite an investment. I'm comfortable with most of the hardware I will use, but I'm wondering if this idea would even work. I want to use a bonsai in the corner of the tank and have it come down into an Iwagumi. I will keep the Bonsai in its planter so it won't be flooded and have it's roots rot and this will be quite a high tech tank. Would it be possible? I also am wondering what lights should I use (One that will be tall enough to go over the Bonsai) and where can I find an ADA like stand without destroying my money? Also, if I need to hang a fixture, how can I do that in the ADA one arm style? Thanks guys! Also, comment on the sketch! (It's really bad XD)

Reason: Better Title
I would think it would be more easily accomplished with a shallower tank. From your sketch there just seems to be a lot of substrate filled space, unless you went with the rock supported bonsai like above. Would definitely be awesome but also troublesome.
Just a thought for the bonsai, how about a cypress? If you can find a bonsai form of the types that grow in the swamps, could end up with an awesome looking root system, as well as a plant that can thrive in flooded environments. was considering one for the tank i am about to set up as well.
