hi , here's a new tank , this one is to be an iwagumi , the stem plants are just here to avoid algae , but as it looks kind of good like that i post some pics of it , the iwagumi version , all in eleocharis parvula should come next month , no hardscape changes , i will only remove the stem plants and turn the population to simulans (green neon) only .

hope you like it anyways.

specs:
60*30*36 , 65Liters
light: 36Watts
co2: 1bps industrial
ferts:step1 , brightyK (special light at water changes 1/3 a week)



a few closer pics

thank you for your comments:)

i will finish this version before to do the iwagumi , i have to work on the left part of the bush , myriophilum does not seem to integrate the bush , it looks too much "separate" , i put some differents stem plants in the myriophilum part (some sp green and indica) .

here's a better picture of the left part , still not perfect though...it's kind of hard to do some nice macro shots with my camera ...i'm working on it



a picture of the full installation , nothing really fancy , no ADA stuff , i try to keep it simple and clean (and cheap), i inject co2 directly into the filter's aspiration , seems to be pretty efficient;)

Intros , the lights are 2*18W ada na-lamp;)

MagpieTear , the setup was 6 or 7 weeks old at the time of the picture , the eleocharis carpet was not fully done and the stem plants part not really thick yet , it is much better now;)

i've been working on the left part of the stem plants part (the matogrossense part) , i think that it is going to be much better , i'll post some pics soon ;)

ch3fb0yrdee , this is eleocharis parvula;)

jciotti , thank you very much , still there is a lot to watch on the web , here on APC there is a lot of stuning work, still if you want to be stuned hard time i suggest you have a look to the CAU site ....it is something else:eek:

about this tank ,it is in my living room , basicaly it is here for my family to see it, at the beginning my wife -who is quite well awared of aquascaping (i mean really)and who is the boss around here btw- wanted some kind of very simple unconventional iwagumi (that explains the "flat" lay out)....now she is bored with this lay out and doesnt even want me to turn this tank to an iwagumi , which was the purpose of this tank....she wants something new (what the f***)....sometimes i wish i was single lol...anyways i'll do the iwagumi ASAP before rescaping this tank;)
