New Iwagumi

Hello Everyone,

I ve begun to setup an 130L Iwagumi and need some help with Aquascaping.

What do you think about the current setup?

I have also attached photos with the HC cuba I am going to be using as main plant and also photo of the lighting system.


Thanks !!

Here are some better pictures with lighting system installed.

I have added some substract pro from my old tank as filtering material. How long do you think it will take to cycle?

Main stone should be 2/3 of the height of your tank. Use an odd number of stones. Put the main stone on a focal point (golden ratio). Maybe combine stones more together. Buy a lot of stones so you can choose the 'best' ones, you don't wanna regret the hardscape later.

The soil will keep leeching ammonia. It's good to add some old material but won't speed up the soil leeching ammonia. Keep testing it and expect it to be 2-8 weeks.

Better than the other ones but I would play a little bit more with it. But definitely an improvement!
