sanzon iwagumi

Tue Jul 14, 2009 6:41 pm
hi all
this is my first post here as iv just registered

since i have taken an interest in keeping crs and will be getting some soon, i thought i better rescape my nano as it wont be easy when full of shrimp, plus i was never happy with the old layout.

i decided on a simple sanzon iwagumi just using what i had and will be using the rest for my 60cm. After ripping out the parvula i didnt realise how much there was. i have 2 plates left on the windowsill. do you think they will be ok for a couple of weeks? anyway the specs

tank: aqua-one 320
filter: eheim 2211
lighting: 2x11w
co2: pressurized
ferts: easylife profito every other day
plants: HC, E parvula, E acicularis

bad images but cant really be helped

can also be view from the other side

the crs will be added after everything has settled down and when i get the money

I love your last shot.
I feel that your last shot should be how the front of your tank looks like.
The main rock really stands out and the way your substrate slopes with a corner filled with white sand works well.

Is that Shou stone? it looks like it from what I can see.

Be careful with the two support stones - they look like they'll get overshadowed by plants pretty quick. Nothing some good trimming regimes won't keep at bay though.
