OK, started playing with a Iwagumi scape earlier, not sold on this, kind of happy with it, but not quite sure.

What ya think?

It feels too spaced out.

Try moving the stones closer.

Have you tried putting the rocks so they all jut outward, or to left or right, instead of pointing to the centre? Might look crap but something worth mocking up.

No crap mate, I have been sitting here for the last hour moving rocks around, unreal, I've gone from 5, to 3, to 5 again, to 7... man this is hard, hard with a limited number and variety of shaped rock.

      I bought two large glass bowls today at the local cheap store, I'd say about almost 20l each, am looking to put a small layer of ADA Amazonia in the bottom of each and plant some stem plants and have them grow and eventually grow out the top of the bowls.
      I'm after some nice suggestions of stem plants to consider for these two bowls, some of the stem plants I will also use in making a Wabu Kusa as well.
      At the moment I am thinking of the following stem plants:
      Limnophila repens 'mini', Alternanthera reineckii 'mini', Hemianthus glomeratus, Ludwigia arcuata x repens, Persicaria sp. Sao Paulo, Rotala colorata, I am also looking at using Hydrocotyle tripartita 'Japan', Hemianthus callitrichoides.
      Any opinions on these plants for a planted bowl?
      Any other stem plants I could also consider?
      Cheers all.

      OK, so I'm looking to do a hair grass carpet in a small Aqua One Horizon 35 tank, I'm looking to add 1 plant and 1 plant only to the tank, I'm going for a minimalistic look, so wondering which plant I should look at, thoughts are Alternanthera reineckii 'Mini', Crypt Wendtii, any other plants I should look at?
      Also looking to kick this off as a DSM tank, so the plant must be able to be grown emersed.

      IME, the healthiest and highest quality has always buying directly from hobbyist, usually a small setup in their garage or fish room. Next was specialty store/importer, last is the local TFS, both often having stock that has been imported, transported and kept in less than ideal conditions... Buying directly from hobbyist has always produced the best results for me...

      Did boil a few times, the water wasn’t completely clear when I stopped cleaning it. So they should be getting some tannins. I was able to remove all but one rock, I have one more piece to put in in its plAce today.   Right on. I’m originally from Ohio, and I’ve been scoping out Flip’s videos and website for a few weeks now. Looks like I’ll be ordering from either Flip or AquaHuna after I get this tank works out completely.   TDS is already down slightly after removing the rock and doing a small water change. I also took the opportunity to remove some plants I wasn’t a fan of and replace them. Indian Almond Leaves came in today too, but my BacterAE is delayed. Thanks Amazon.🙄🙄

      Its about 1 cm its definitely of breeding age.. i would be happy if its male, but my eyes is untrained when it comes to fully colored males.

      I would think that is a male IF it is old enough to be able to tell but I think it is maybe too young to tell? This video should give you some handy tips for seeing the differences! https://skfaquatics.com/forum/forums/topic/14104-telling-male-from-female-shrimp/ Simon

      Im having a hard time trying to figure the gender of my shrimp.. so i know that virgin females is usually more skinnier than your usual large females..  My shrimp are mostly average grade fire reds, most of the males seems pale in coloration. Can anybody help me?
