    Iwagumi

    Trying my first iwagumi style tank
    Had the urge to do it cause I had 20 long sitting around

    This is what Iíve done so far, Iím using eco complete 1.5 bags so far might need more. Btw went with eco complete cause I donít have the money to drop for aquasoil. Iím plan to DSM but Iím not sure if itíll work since the substrate is inert but I heard you can spray fertilizer.

    If you have any advice feel free to comment

    I can see it!

    I think the rockwork looks nice, but maybe a little busy (too many rocks? Don't trust my taste, LOL)

    What are you planning to plant it with?

    Love how jagged the hardscape looks, reminds me of a mountain range

    Well the problem with eco complete and similar substrates is that they are just sharp bits of rock. It can be hard to plant many plants in it. What are you planning for plants? It's rare to get a good carpet with these substrates.

    I think for me, the issue lies with your largest stone. It looks much different than the others, not really cohesive.
