Thanks Mizu for the complement

Well after using 30ml excell daily and a weekly 30% RO water change, the algae is 90% gone photo period is 8hrs now and the glosso/marselia/E.T. Micro mix is really growing thick and compact. Im beginning to dose ADA Step one three pumps twice a week and brighty K four pumps a day. I only have 5 huge Amano shrimp and they keep the stones very clean. I use to brush the stones with a tooth brush once a week but not no more. I will add 5 more shrimp and 4 more oto's for a total of 9 oto's. I added a black background the plants colors is much better.

Here is some advise for any one attempting an Iwagumi scape do not do not have any MTS in youir tank. They will burrow in the substrate and gradually flatten the substrate. I say this from experience and b/c I pulled out the last MTS today.
