    thanks for the response.
    I am using it as the inspiration for my first aquascape.
    Still trying to gather all of the pieces.

    you can compare this scape with a simple iwagumi layout - there substrate is almost covered with plants but there isn much bio mass in this tank. use better a shallover tank to go sure your light reachs the bottom. you might dose the half Estimate Index amount of ferts, go sure you have a good circulation of the water surface and do minimum 2 x wc per week, about 50% of the water. with enough co2, strong light, daily dosage of ferts and regular maintenance i´m sure your first scape will be a success ;)

    as well do not put in too much fauna because of the little bio mass.
    please start a progress journal and share your experience with us.
    good luck!

    The driftwood looks like red moor and the stones are probably seiryu/mini landscape stones.
