    Hello everyone! :)


    I decided to start my second aquascape, which might be (I hope) used for shrimps in the futur! :)

    I wanted to know your opinion about the "balanced" of the hardscape, I think it's look enough good!

    I know it seems to be an Iwagumi style. Howerer, the plantation will not be like in an Iwagumi tank! It will be a very simple tank! =)

    The tank makes 10 litters.
    The light is 9W.
    I will use Anubia, Hydrocotyle and try Lilaeopsis novea zealandiae.
    I use ADA Amazonia soil!
    It is 20*20*25 cm.

    Thank for your advices! :)

    Hi Glomeridae, Nice little set up :cool: Love the placement of the larger rocks;) It the three little ones all in a row at the front . Can you place the larger of the three small rocks, And place the flat end at the point of where the two larger rocks meet ,And place the other two just behind that like a small rock fall:) Just an idea:unsure: What rock is it ?? Is it Marble ??

    Hello! Thanks! I received this tank four months ago and haven't time to aquascape it... :confused:
    But now, it is on way! :)
    Ok, so I'm not sur to have all good understand about your idea, but I will try as you told me! :) I keep you inform of that! =)

    I found these rocks in nature, I always pick up stones when I go in nature! =) So I'm sorry but I really have no idea about what kind of rock it is! :(

    Hello!

    Just after taking care of it! =) I can't understand why the picture is so yellow, but it isn't the real color!
    The plants grow up well! I use a filter after changing the water of the tank, I know the liters per hours is too much but I only you it when I need! I will buy a appropriate filter soon! =)


    I dont know why the picture just turns up... Weird...

    I'm impressed by the little plant, it's growing very fast and seems to be easy to maintain! :)
    I must take a picture without the filter! :confused:

    Thanks! :) Very easily plant: no fertilizer, no CO2 for the moment! :D
    Yep, one little problem, I forgot that it's limeston... :eek:
    One day it will disappear! :ROFLMAO:
    I just checked that shrimps need a calcareous water, so I think it will not be a problem! :eek:

    Here some updates about my 1 liters aquascape! Plants are growing well! I'm glad to have found easy plants to maintain!
    Hydrocotyle and Lilaeopsis novea zealandiae have both nice flowers! :)

    I like what you have done but those small rocks just do not seem to work in with those two larger rocks at the back.

    I wish I had seen it when you started.

    To start off with they (the 3) are going to get lost when the grassy plants get established.

    To me they also look very distracting (shape etc) in comparison to the large character looking rocks.

    Those two large rocks especially the largest actually take up a lot of water space.
