    Wow sir! Really great tanks! Too bad I wasn't in the loop early on... but next time I will not miss it!
    Also, would you know Sir where to get/buy plants and substrate suitable for a WABI KUSA setup from our local Philippine shops... I want to try making one.

    Hi Mark,

    Sorry to butt in :unsure: Wabi-Kusa you do not need anything special:)

    A bowl and some substrate will do,Or you could make a ball with a stocking filled with substrate.

    Cover the ball with moss a plant up with trimmings from your tank plants will work fine.

    Or even rotting tree wood " A nice shape helps" then pre soak and plant up,

    Have a look at my W-K journal http://www.aquascapingworld.com/threads/starting-point-wabi-kusa.7933/

    Its a long journal:DShould give you some ideas though

    Good luck with your W-K Please let me know if you do one i would love to see it(y)

    Wabi Kusa is not that popular in our place but i knew someone who introduce the clay ball with plants two years ago
    also a hobbyist in the Philippines - John Abram Boqueo visit him on fb.

    meanwhile you can read thread of greenfinger 2. check his link posted aboved.

    UPDATE as of 22 February 2015

    I added some small rocks similar to the hardscape at the LH side and flattened out the furrow in the middle as suggested by Keith. I also sorted out the plants at the back-end to give it a cleaner look.

    I would not play with that tank any more just keep up the regular maintenance and trimming and then let it develop slowly into a very good natural looking aquascape.

    Mark as the path gets older it will get more natural and make your Aquascape look even better.
