Looks good, I still think bigger rocks, more dramatic slopes make a ok iwagumi layout into a great layout.

I just skimmed over the journal but you said you added 100 fish? I see about 5! What happened to the rest? Also there is no way I would consider a iwagumi low maintenance, have you trimmed the carpet yet? Will take hours!!! Hope you can keep it maintained in my experience if you not trimming the carpet at least once a month it will grow to thick and undergrowth will die and lift off!

I tried to find bigger rocks but it was difficult and expensive to get bigger dark Seiryu rocks so I settled for these. Maybe in the next tank makeover I'll add some big driftwood make it look less empty. But I'm happy the way it turned out.

There was a water change accident that killed most of the fish. About 80 arrived today. I'll make another video update when they have better color.

I have trimmed the carpet in this tank a couple of times, about once a month. I had it lift off before years ago when I first tried to grow it.

I agree that the stones could've been bigger. Just the increased height of the repens makes the setup look better in the most recent video since it adds support to the stones and fills out the space. That's too bad about the fish.

Don't know if your interested, but I do have a pretty good amount of Seiryu stone and some pretty large pieces.
