When I first saw this kind of rock, I know that a new layout will be carry out in order to remind me some scenes in a film long time ago...

It's quite hard to combine the such characteristic rocks into a harmonious composition...
After many changes, it look like this:







I will continue after the tank will be filled with plants.
Thanks.

I even have no idea about the rock name. It come from the highland area of Vietnam. To exploit, people have to dig very deep into the red soil then carry down by papoose from the high mountain peak. Each piece have unique appearance so that it's difficult to combine them into a group.
Tank specs: 70cmx45cmx40cm(W,D,H)

Here some new pics after 2 week time:







Thanks all!

what is the ground cover you planted all over?
With this lay out, first choice I've made it's all kind of grasses as Eleocharis; Marsilea Hirsuta, echinodorus tenellus. 2 kind of moss that I love to stick on rock are Fissidens fontanus; Fissidens nobilis mini.
Also what type of substrate did you use?
I use recycled ADA amazona from the previous layout and add some liquid fertilizer when needed.
Thanks,

I love the table-top of fissidens :) it's almost like that used to be level with everything else and some quake or other pushed that piece of earth up to where it is now.

Blue, this tank is just fantastic! This is by far one of the most unique Iwagumi I have ever seen. There is so much potential with this tank and the rocks. I cant get enough of it. Fissidens Nobilis Mini is gorgeous. I have never seen this type of fissidens before and it works well on top of your rock. Give it that natural mossy look because it works well with the rock size.

GOOD JOB! Keep up the good work blue.
