Cool turbowagon's 8 gallon reboot Iwagumi style high-tech

After a ~5 year hiatus, I'm back and excited to start up my 8 gallon nano again! For the first time, I'm going to try (or at least start with) an Iwagumi-style hardscape. I'm still undecided on how I'm going to plant it. I have a few plant packages on the way, so we'll see what I end up with and the direction it goes from there.

It's a reboot of this tank:

------------------------------

Equipment:
8 gallon Finnex rimless glass tank
Finnex Planted+ 16" LED light fixture
Eheim 2213
Hydor ETH-200 inline heater
Pressurized CO2 w/ Rex Grigg reactor
Eco-complete substrate
Seiryu stones

EI dosing regime with KNO3, KH2PO4, and Plantex CSM+B.
Flourish root tabs

Plants should arrive on Thursday or Friday, but I set up the tank today.

Added a little peat moss under the substrate:


Hardscape in place:


Tank filled with water:


Equipment under the cabinet:


Moonlights engaged:


------------

Thanks for looking! I'll update later in the week when the plants arrive.
