Plants are in!

Tropica 1-2 Grow Rotala rotundifolia 'H'ra'- 2 pots
Tropica 1-2 Grow Rotala macrandra - 1 pot
Tropica 1-2 Grow Eleocharis acicularis 'Mini'- 9 pots
Tropica Rotala rotundifolia - 1 pot

I am trying to keep the plant sps. as minimum as possible. I might add Rotala green at some point if I think it will fit well.

I am little skeptical of adding stem plants in Iwagumi setup but I wanted to at least try and see if it can do this scape some justice. If not, I will probably replace it with tall hair grass like Montvidnesis or probably Parvula

I'm not normally a fan of Iwagumi's, but that main overpowering rock add's real tension and interest to the scape. Nice work!

Scape is progressing slowly but surely. I am thinking of making a few changes.
I was planning to keep neocaridinas in the scape so I have been using SaltyShrimps Gh/Kh+. I am planning to switch to SaltyShrimps GH+ instead. I think the plants should love more acidic conditions anyway. Do you guys have any tips on keeping

caridinas in the high tech tank?
