How many pounds of substrate did it take to build this current setup ? So nice...

I would say it was about 6 18L bags of AS in this tank. Though about half was used AS that I had in storage.

Thanks for the complement but I'm not sure there are any original iwagumi layouts anymore. .

I don't know about your solenoid but I wouldn't worry about your Coarlife timer going out as being an ominous sign. It's more of an ominous sign of where Coarlife will go if they don't up their quality control. They are pretty much supposed to break, which sucks because it's a useful product.

That said, can't wait for updates, love this tank.

Well from what I have been reading, if the timers not on fire, I'm doing alright.

Mine was always a concern to me. Luckily it broke before it burned my house down as well.

Monthly update. Just a bit more growth. BBA continues to be an annoyance. Next week I am going to give this a haircut.

Later today I'm going to try to wrestle the Pristella tetras out of my other tank without destroying it and put them in this tank.

Wow. Seriously great. I always wanted to do belem type foreground but I found that it's just too tall for the tank sizes I have. I gave up on my most recent effort and went back to HC which I don't regret as it wasn't going to be compact enough but this is very inspiring to me.

great job! It's really a pretty tank! I have been trying to get my dwarf hair grass to grow (more light, ferts, and CO2) but it's forever - I've been able to modulate it so I don't get BBA to reinfest my tank.

I have learned that Seachem Excel in a 10ml syringe to spot treat works amazingly well. I eradicated all of my BBA in a few weeks by doing that every other day.

EDIT: What filter are you using on your tank? I'm about to sell my Fluval 406 because the flow after cleaning is like a hamster blowing through a straw...

I have been spot treating with peroxide and my preferred method, mechanical removal.

The filter is an XP3 that I haven't cleaned in over a year. It's plenty of flow and reliable. I'm not a fan of Fluval filters though I haven't owned one in at least 7 years. Maybe the quality is better now.

Beautiful tank. Have fun netting out all of the belem after the haircut.
