Heavily planted 1 feet nano aquarium[ [Iwugami]


Here's my 1 feet Iwugami planted setup. (might move around some but this is probably about it)



Aquascape style
3 stone Iwugami setup

Livestock
3x Amano shrimps
3x Glofish

Plants:
Glossostigma (foreground)
Noideawhatplant(midground) <----- Guys, help me identify
Ludwigia Arcuata (background)

Equipment:
Aquarium: 1 feet (30x20x17) super clear, sapphire glass aquarium
Filtration: HBL-501 400L/h HOB <----Bio filtration and a bit of mechanical filtration
HDom mini 240L/h HOB <--- Chemical filtration using activated carbon
CO2: DIY CO2 using dual 1.5L yeast bottles, cigarette filter
CO2 indicator: Ista CO2 indicator
Lighting: AquaZonic 6Wx2
Soil: H.E.L.P Advanced soil for Plants
Fertilizer: Dry fertilizer
Cooling: Dymax Cooling fan <--- Got it for only RM20, only use it when I'm out :P
Temperature: Standard digital thermometer

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm planning to make several changes:

1) Adding more plants to fill up the gap between the middle and right rock more densely. What about between the left and middle rock?

2) Adding in a canister filter to replace both my HOBs as they are a bit unsightly

Any comments/critique are welcomed!

It looks awesome! I think once you add more plants in the background it will really come together

Thanks guys. I've noticed quite a few of my ludwigia arcuata (background plant) dying so I removed them, it's quite bare at the back now. One more thing is that the ludwigia's stem is so soft and not firm, so it's quite hard to plant and also for it to resist the strong water flow hahaa.

I'm thinking of moving the midground plants to the back? And for the midground, I'll think of another plant. I hope that Myrio mattongressen would be able to grow high up (can't seem to find data on it)

What do you guys think? Really appreciate any input

Since my tank is infested with hair algae all over and even disrupting my plants from getting sunlight, I have started on some algae killer, the Ocean Free O Algae. Today is Day 3 and I'm pleased to see a lot of whitish film like stuff. This is the dying algae which will turn white and later die off.

1month+ update.

Just to add

1) Did a rescape, filling in the back with much more substrate
2) Positioned the rocks for a more appealing look
3) Added many more plants: Ludwigia Arcuata, Rotala rotundifolia, Rotala something, eleocharis parvula, Ludwigia Super Red
4) Added Malayan shrimps as clean up crew

I'm going for the heavily planted tank look

I've just only trimmed and planted these so this is just the EARLY look, I'll update again with the final look. And ohh, I'll be adding more plants soon to fill up the gap at the back of the middle rock and more of the red plant on the left...it's so pretty!
