    I made one more Wabi-Kuza, it's the forth but the second that i publish.
    This is a record breaking size :) - 38 cm!!!
    It's made by 5 ready made Wabi-Kusas (with Rotala sp. Ceylon, Rotala Colorata, alguns Echinodorus, etc) and some caught-on-nature mosses that i've been keeping for almost 3 months on a plate at a window.
    I just put all the Wabi-Kusas with some Seiryu stones on sand!
    Lights are 2x 5,5w IKEA led lights.

    Have fun! Some photos are macros.

    Just out of curiosity, would one or two shrimps work in there?

    Thanks guys. It's the first day, I hope that everything will grow up right.
    Edvet, I'm thinking on some wilds. I had them on a previous Wabi-Kusa for 1,5 year :)

    I had some sort of mini amano shrimp, they are tough and breed easily, and small.

    Hi Pedro, looks awesome... Is it covered? I keep my WKs covered for the first weeks unless I use already emersed plants, in that case it is enough if I mist them twice a day

    They were all emersed, so no need to make an adaptation period.
    I think that it can be seen that the ones on the right and on the left (of the overall picture) are growing very well. The ones on the middle (Rotala Colorata) were slower to recover and i also cut some and put them on a aquarium to see how they look like on water. They are growing like mad on water, but still adapting (color turning to red).
