Iwagumi video and photos - 2.5G

Here's my 12x8x8" with Microrasbora nana, dwarf riccia and haigrass.

I sold the tank a good while ago but it was nice to see this clip after all this time.

It was taken when Practical Fishkeeping (PFK) magazine did a photo shoot. Here's a few low-res photos, courtesy of PFK.

Full shot


Full shot with ripple effect (using hairdryer)

Me and the tank to get a sense of scale

OMG!!! That's small. If I didn't see that comparison pic I would think that the tank will be a lot bigger.

*** Shameless Plug***

I work at www.brightcove.com and you should think about uploading these videos to there as well. It doesn't have the captive audience of Youtube, but the quality is much much higher.

I'd love to see more aquarium video on the site, but its not something you commonly see online. Hopefully that will change!

I read the PFK article the other day and tried to get in touch with you, and lo and behold, you're already here!!

But now I forget what I wanted to ask you.

Do you have any higher res photos?
