    Thought I would share the layout that preceded my current project in my 30 cm cube, "Below Rippled Glass".

    It managed to place in the top 10 in the <27 liters category of the AGA contest, 37 in the CIAC nano category, and 140 in IIAC in 2019.

    Let me know what you think of the layout. I tossed in a few progress photos, so if you are interested in seeing the changes over time take a look at some of the thumbnails.

    I really love the depth you have achieved in such a small space. Can I ask what species the plant, half way up on the right hand side, of picture 4 is please? It looks like an anubias but very similar to an orchid.

    Hi all,
    I'm interested in this one as well. I don't know what it is, but <"an Aroid">, <"close to Aridarum"> would be my guess.

    cheers Darrel

    Was looking at the full tank shot photograph, not the thumbnail image!

    Indeed the plant beside the Bucephalandra looks like an Aridarum!

    It is Aridarum, very slow grower. I got one in my tank, and it’s been over one year now.

    Yes, its an Aridarum. Did not grow well for me and melted back. It was growing, but not fast enough so I ended up removing it from the scape.

    It’s slow but I got this trick from seller to promote growth. This is also applicable for buce.

    Tie or glue the plant to a pad/rock, in my case it’s glued to iron pad. Bury the pad into substrate deep enough, let its rhizome stay close to the bottom, and wait for results.
