ADA Mini M Iwagumi

Hi guys!
This is my first ever aquascape after keeping discus and goldfish for years...

Tried my best with research and this is the hardscape I came up with.

What do you guys feel about this? Any suggestions?

Hi,

The hardscape looks good, but what plants and fauna do you plan to have?

Also, if you're new to aquascaping ( like I am as well), you can find a really great resource/ inspiration on "The Green Machine" channel on YouTube. If you're not able to find it let me know and I will post the link.

Thanks,
Matt M.

I'm planning on just having hc on this tank, although I'm also considering adding some dwarf hair grass around the back of the hardscape to give some height.

Do you think the stones are a bit too short? I'm pretty sure that the head stone is touching the bottom pane of the tank. Should I give it some space?

Personal opinion: a little more height could help the scape give it a shot and see how it looks...

I like its simplicity. My two cents: move the rocks in the back more to the left, and add a small rock to the front right. Either way it will look good with a full carpet!

I would say move the main rock to the left slightly so it's less central.
