Iwagumi 50cm Tank - March 10

It's time again for another update on my small tank. Few trimmings on Staurogyne sp and 1 trimming on Peacock moss (actually I just pull them off from the lava rock because I am lazy . . .) and I have stopped routine dosing. Water change every 2 weeks and occasionally dose with ADA Brighty K, Seachem Excel and ADA Phyton Git. Even with lack of regular maintenance, this tank is doing exceptionally well. I guess placing lava rocks in the tank provide added advantage and play an important role as internal filtration (provide place for beneficial bacteria colonization due to the porous feature of the rock).

. . . ~6 months. Close up shot.
