Not that it's the most impressive but I really love the 2nd one. It looks really "rich" and "high end" but all the plants are easy to grow and are easily available. It's strength is 100% in the design.

Thank you. Yes, I do have more. Some just need to be photographed and I need to hunt for the other photos.

It is about 200 gallons. It was a pain to scape. Tank was viewable 360 degrees.

Check out AFA in SF, they have a good selection of plants there or Aquatouch in AZ. If I am not mistaken, there are only a few shops that specialize in aquatic plants.

If i can also add in a recommendation, i'd definitely check out Albany Aquarium in the bay area. It's a great store with a very nice plant selection.

Absolutely love the 120P iwagumi and mini-S Jojo. What type of HG did you use in the 120P?

Yes, thanks Philip. Forgot about Albany Aquarium.

Thanks. The 120P was my very first try at an iwagumi. HG was E. parvulus. It was actually pretty cool using parvulus because I could actually change the look of the tank by just trimming E. parvulus in different way.
