My iwagumi


21 Dec 2013
Hi guys

Just introducing myself

I'm Craig from gillingham Kent and below is my tank

It is jewel vision 180 with a fluval led light
And fluval 306 external filter

Substrate is 18l Ada Amazonia soil and I have used aprox 6kg of slate from a local builders merchant

Hemianthus callitrichoides
Elocharis parvula
Glossostigma elatinoides
Hydrocotyle tripartita
Lidwiga sp
Ultricularia graminifolia

Pressurised co2 system with up aqua inline diffuser at 2.6 bubbles per second
Photoperiod 11am till 9pm with co2 on at lights off 1hr before

RO water
Ph 6.2
22degrees celcius

Fish and inverts
Now only 1 galaxy rasbora
1 ottocinclus
1 cherry shrimp
And 1 apple snail

Your comments are very welcomed as this is a rescape from keeping a low tech planted gravel substrate tank and everything is new to me

Welcome Craig, nice tank.
Thank you

The pictures don't do it justice really the plants are not yellow like you see

I've had a few issues recently with ammonia and ph swings hence the stock
