The latest addition to our showroom is this 60cm Iwaguimi with a more unusual plant choice...Cladophora (moss balls cut to shape). So far so good, a bit of an experiment :)

It's been fairly low maintenance up to this point, with just the usual water changes.

The opening shot is four weeks after set-up. Carry on watching to see the making of this scape.



Equipment wise I'm running the Twinstar LED 600E (set at around 70% intensity), Twinstar M5 sterilizer, Neo diffuser by Aquario and a small Eheim Ecco canister filter with the addition of glass lily pipes.

Let's see how this works out long term :)

Cheers
Dave

Love the monster Bolbitis ;)

Thanks Tim. It's quite a quick grower once it gets going, for a fern that is. Needs trimming back once every 4-6 weeks!

What a great looking tank. Love the barbs in there. Great fish. Are they ok with the shrimps?
