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.

      As jayc has mention, do check if you are allowed to import them into your country, I think Australia is ok as long as you applied for the paper work to import them, but do check first. But this option are for those who are after good quality shrimp with a guaranteed of pure bloodline. You can contact them through this email, they accept Paypal with a addition 7.5% on top, their Paypal account email is different, but email them first for relevant detail as they may differ from mine.  YU CRS CENTER CORP. <contact@yu-crscenter.com>   For me they cost with shipping and Paypal fee, its still cheaper them in Hong Kong. I will have to delay this purchase, ADA and the CALs Black Earth Premium substrate are limited now, most places does not have stock, and no delivery date.

      See, and I thought you meant weak solutions were just as susceptible.  So I should pre-mix my 7 gallon tank when I get the RO water and it will last the 4 weeks or so that I use it to change water just fine.  That's what I was after.  Apparently the Salty Bee guys think the same.  Makes sense.

      I was talking about letting pure RO water sit around for too long unused.  Try not to do it.
      RO water that has been remineralised is different.

      Oops did I mix them around?   <edit> - I did mix the names around. Fix it now in my post above.

      Ok then. Will add more plants to try and reduce nitrates.  Thanks Simon and JayC for the pointers and hints. I think the Dino Spit is the Glutaraldehyde and the Dino Pee has the macro and micronutrients. I will leave off the Glutaraldehyde and reduce the dose of the Pee to one third. I am pretty careful with the dosing.  Good news is that there are at least two RCS females still in the tank and looking well. Maybe they went and hid and moulded after the big water change? The surviving  DAE are all looking well.  Anyway will take all your advice on board and do smaller water changes and work out a dripper system.
