Critique My Scape: First Iwagumi Attempt


Not new to planted tanks but I am new to the Iwagumi style planted tank. All my planted tanks are dirted and I have done some high tech dirted tanks. I think i'm off to a good start with this tank but I would like some input from you guys. Here are the specs and a photo:

Lighting: T5HO's
Substrate: Dirt with a pool filter sand cap
No dosing
Co2: Pressurized

Here is one of my previous high tech dirted tanks:



and here is my newly setup dirted Iwagumi tank:

I like how simple this looks. Where did you get the stones?

I would slope the substrate more to accentuate the stones. Those are nice stones, I'm also curious in regards to your source.

Thanks, Found them near some train tracks in Tennessee.

I would do a slope except the dirt under the sand makes it a pain. Rocks were found in Tennessee.

Not really sure haha. So far so good though. Not messing with my water perimeters or anything.
