benon I live about 2.5 miles from AFA and ride my bike to and from that area. Nothing like biking back with rocks and an Eheim 60.

Never considered buying rocks at Katsura, but that is a good idea. I feel like such a sucker buying rocks at AFA. I always walk to the counter feeling like an idiot.

" HOW MUCH ??? !!! "

CL The thickness of the hc and ug is amazing, and the rocks protruding out of the pillow of bright green looks very cool.

Ugly Genius Thanks, everyone!

riverrun's still doing it's thing.

Not much has changed. I bought a heater for it; a twenty-five watt Fluval Edge heater. (Ill-timed as I had this tank heaterless for most of the winter and now with summer approaching...oh well...)

riverrun has two shrimp. I have no idea what kind they are. They are somewhere between yellow and green.

They love each other.

This tank had recurring GSA, so I started dosing phosphates as I hear that a lack of it can lead to GSA. We'll see if it turns out to be the case. So as of now, I'm dosing N, K, P, and micros. This is the first time in years that I've had to do a full dosing regimen. This is probably because I have so few shrimp and no fish in it.

Anyway, that's pretty much it.

Iwagumi tanks are pretty boring to journal. The only updates one can give are: I need to trim; I just trimmed; or I bought a heater.

In this case the update is, I need to trim and I just bought a heater.

problemman I have to say this is the only iugwami setup i have ever liked.

ZooTycoonMaster Hey UG, I feel like I've asked this before, but what's your experience with UG? Because I'm thinking about getting some for my tank.

Cheapskate looking really good. Nice tip on the "star/costar rock" approach to aquascape. I am still working on mine, but that might be just the right conceptual boost to take my hardscape to the next level (where it doesn't look like a kindergarten class designed my tank, lol)

tizzite That rock really is beast. Amazing tank. I'm going to go rock hunting at my local bonsai store now.

A Hill That looks like sinking mini riccia to me... Any better pictures?

Either way it looks great.

Ugly Genius Dunno if any of you remember the "Jelly Bolt Algae" from Source, but I've got it going on in riverrun, too.

"Jelly Bolt Algae", for those who don't know, is the name I gave a particular type of algae that grew in Source several months ago. It's a very pretty algae in that it branches like Staghorn, but is gelatin-like and billowy.

This time around, the "Jelly Bolt" is darker hued than it was in Source.

The above photos do not do it justice as it is incredibly beautiful in person. It looks like a strand of tiny dark pearls.

CL There are only so many times that I can say that this tank is amazing, so, I'll have to say it's astounding this time.

Your tank is sick! Your advice on how to setup a hardscape is great! I will definitely take it to mind when I go looking for rocks and setting up my tank. Thanks for the great pics. BTW something I like to ask and IDK if it has been answered, what kind of camera do you use and how do you shoot?

MrJG Beautiful man, just awesome. I have to agree with everyone else. Everything from the hardscape to plant selection is great and executed to perfection.

How does the u. gibba not drive you crazy though?

Also I didn't get a chance to return your message. Thank you very much for your reply. Well said for choosing "the one" and then following the placement of other stone with flow in consideration. If this tank alone isn't a grand example that you've done well with this I don't know what is.

Outlawboss I think the samurai UG's armor would be green, or better yet "Emerald". Looking awesome.
