Sub's 2nd 5.4g - Iwagumi #2

Hey all, back with another tank journal, featuring my 5.4g ADA mini M-like tank.
I've always wanted a clean iwagumi with a nice healthy carpet, so I've decided to go ahead and give it a try. I've decided to go with DHG instead of HC or anything else, because dry start is relatively fast and easy to maintain. Here's the progress so far.

Tank is running on CO2, dry ferts, and medium-high light (2 t5ho).
Added several CRS and Oto cats as well.

Excellent work. The hair grass has grown in well and the scape looks nice.

Thanks! The carpet is actually not filled in, and it pretty bare still. The angle makes it look less so.
