Here is my take on the iwagumi rock work idea. I've been working on this for a while now, just wish I had used bigger rocks!
Someday I'll pull the crypto and rotala, they are temporary additions.

Thanks.

2.5 gallon, dirt and sand substrate (poor man's aqua soil), Red Sea nano HOB filter, 13watt AH supply kit very close to the water's surface, pressurized CO2 at the lowest rate I can get it to go. It gets 50% weekly water changes and 1 1/2x EI dosing.

I finally decided I would never be happy with this tank until I got some bigger rocks in there.
So, now I have some much larger mismatched rocks...
Those are downsides of collecting your own, I suppose
Hopefully they will take on a green algae patina soon and look a little better. Over all I'm much happier with the 'scape.

Whoops! Guess what happens when you muck about with a tank too much...
guess I have a project for the weekend!

Oh, that's unfortunate. Good luck with that. The tank was looking good, though!
