Sweet! I can see this looking really good in a couple of months.

that's great. nice fish selection. that biggest rock looks like it's just sitting on top of the gravel, but that will resolve once the Hemianthus grows in.

hey i got your message about lily pipes. that project with the rimless tank is on hold right now so i don't know when i might think about that some more.

thanks hydrophyte! the hemianthus has barely grown at all in about almost a month, so i may just replace it with elatine triandra, bigger leaf, but a lot less demanding and a lot faster growing

Hey fishman, great scape but I think it needs some touch ups. Your main stone sticks out to much giving it an unnatural look. You should try pushing it down more so it is in the Aqua soil. The photos you took really compliment your HC and Hair Grass, I love how dark green they are!!!

I wish I COULD push it down more the other rocks are like icebergs, more than half is under the AS, so the main rock is sitting on top of the others, so I can't push it down without moving the other rocks unfortunately

I agree with Hydrophyte. I think once the hemianthus starts to take off and creates a carpet it'll cover the gap between the rock and soil. Other than that it looks great! I really like this scape

nice scape, kinda reminds me of my own 30C except with a slightly different rock layout (and the rock types).
HC foreground and grassy backgrounds work really well in nano iwagumis.

also, once the plants grow between the rocks, the main stone will stick out less because the plants will add more flow between each rock.

I would recommend planting something like e tennelus around the main stone, a little bit taller grower to provide transition from the foreground to the background and also to cover up the "sitting on soil" effect.

I don't have much feedback to give on the hardscape itself (which is a good thing, you did well in my humble opinion), other than perhaps because the stones themselves, while possessing interesting features don't have enough character to pull the scape together all by their lonesome, so some creative planting would go a very long way here, furthermore since the rocks are a bit bigger than normal you can get away with some taller growers without sacrificing rock impact which is again, a good thing in my opinion.

Great start, fish. It's clean and elegant. Glad you're posting this in the Nano forum where there are people who can appreciate it beyond the "I can't believe you did that in something so small!" Nano tankers can appreciate this tank way beyond all that.

I'd give the HC a bit more time. Sometimes, it does take a long time to get going -- it took two months in one tank I did -- but once it does, I think the small and detailed leaves will be an awesome contrast to the comparatively smooth textures of your rocks. I'm not certain elatine triandra or Glosso could achieve this same effect. Be patient. I think it'll be worth it.

Plainsong. That's what I'd name it.
