Couldn't help getting back to starting a 3rd tank... This one has to stay low maintenance though. So I've decided to attempt a dry start of my first Iwagumi and keep it simple.

Hardware:
ADA Mini-S
Flexi-Mini LED
10lb CO2 tank with Milwaukee Reg - should last a couple years for this little tank :)
Do!Aqua Diffuser
Finnex PX-360

Hardscape:
Manten Rocks

Substrate:
ADA Amazonia and Eco Complete mix

Flora:
Hemianthus Callitrichoides 'Cuba'

Fauna:
Yet to be determined

Special thanks to: Canadian Aquatics, April's Aquarium, Bien Lim, Denis, Battmanh

Any feedback on layout would be great. Thanks!

Lining up the hardscape:


Done planting the HC:

Big changes. Thanks to Denis and a couple other friends I got the hankering for trying shrimp again. Soo.... I pulled out all the HC and converted the tank over to low-tech.
I had the tank cycling without fish for about 9 weeks, did some water testing and saw that ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates were all 0. So I added 7 CRS to see how they would do. I got one casualty within 2 days but that is it so far. Here's hoping that they survive for me...

I'm really gonna miss the half decent carpet..

Please give me ideas on scape

Hardware:
Elite Mini Filter
Flexi Mini LED

Cryptocoryne Affinis ?
Cryptocoryne Nurii "Taman Negaru"
Mini Taiwan Moss

Microsorum pteropus 'Petite'
