i've started this journal just to tell my self that i am going forward with my aqauscaping. MA have a scape, my mother has 2 but i don't have anything. :arghh:

The plan is to create an iwagumi.I'm finding out more and more that I'm quite a fan of the style and want to try and create something that i can feel proud of, now my first challenge is to decide which stone to use. I've been pro-active in trying to find some stones native to this country, so i might go down that road.or I'm still a fan of seryiou stone, and I'm beginning to understand a bit more how to use the stuff, so I still may opt for that.that's if i can be 100% sure on the layout, it may be a trip to AE to actually choose the stone!

i'm pretty sure on knowing what plants i want tio use too. it's a simple choice really consisting of HC, riccia, eleocharis acicularis e tenellus and blyxa.

so i'm not sure when this will be updated, but, when it is....you can rest assured.... i'll let you know ;)

Re: saintly's 120cm iwagumi

What can I say. It has that clean crisp look that I love. I think you are overdoing the light however. Maybe cut back to 0.1WPG and may get away with it but you will need to keep CO2 high!!! In the region of 400ppm or so should cut it :D

Very bold and original. Forget ADA and go for the Turner prize ;)

Maybe even safe from the rock police on this one ;)

Looking forward to the new scape matey. This one was my favourite so far but then you used my favourite plants in it so I am biased.

anticipation is killing me.

How do you find the temparature with the radiator next to it? I've always been put off placing tanks next to radiators.
no problems what so ever. in fact it takes the pressure off the in-line heater if anything. the radiator it self is on low anyway :D

The black canvas. For me, the most exciting stage....

All the best mate. You've probably about 200 members subscribed to this thread, so no pressure! :D

I'm tearing down my 60cm and doing a ADA-clone Iwagumi. I wish I had an empty 120cm to play with!
