I'm definitely a fan of the new stems on the left side-- makes the scape look much more unified and much better than it did before. Tanks is looking nice!


I'm also jealous of how red your rotala is. Urayamashiiiiii . . .

Beautiful tank.....amazing health and growth. I think if you cut down on the number of species on the right and simplify it a tad, you would really take it to another level~

Amazing! I bet your fish are happy. The color contrast is great.

Very peaceful tank with the warm reds of the arcuata and rotalla. Was it originally Iwagumi?
Anyhow, Nice!

Nico - very very nice tank! Question for you: Did you start the tank up with the Penac A? If not, did you notice a difference once it was added?

thank you all for your comments i am very pleased that you like it so much ,it has been quite hard as a first planted tank to do something that looks ok .

Steven ,i also think that the left side is much better that way,for the red plants i guess that the use of eca explains everything ,especially when you see that i dont have so much light on this tank ,only 144 Watts , something like 0.8W/1Liter .i get "urayamashii" when i see your tanks

fresh_lynny,the right part has always been a problem ,i tried many things but nothing really worked ,i am still thinking how i could make it better ,i think too that "simplifying" it is the solution ...i just didn't figure yet how...

Betowess ,i started it with a vague idea of doing a mountain ,not really an iwagumi ,the original idea started with 13 varieties of plants (for 6 varieties now), kind of dutch tank with a stone hardscape ,i guess though that i've been influenced by everything i can see here in Japan (not only tanks ,nature and gardens too), and that the hardscape turned to a "iwagumi-like" or "seki-tei-like".

SuRje1976 ,i started with penac A ,i am not sure if it is its effect but the tank had usual launch algae then not a single one since ,totally algae free for 5 months.

Stunning! How high did you slope your substrate in the back?
Your HC looks so uniform! Do you trim it to keep it that way?

i didn't slope it so much as a beginner's mistake ,i had to correct it recently to put the main stone in a higher position ,here is what it looked like


here is what it looks like now ,i changed a bit the plantation in front of the main stone












well i hope that you like it ,the tank is 8 months old now
