 Set  up  my  first  iwagumi  guys   Smile  Just  a  temporary  scape.Suggestions  on  making  it  more  appealing  are  most  welcome.
 I  have  the  following  in  mind  -  
 Plant  more  of  the  hairgrass  on  the  right  and  add  some  vallisneria  to  the  back.Want  to  add  some  hc  as  foreground.Got  some  Co2  issues  however.How  would  some  tennelus  look  instead  of  hc?
 Any  other  plants  which  would  look  nice  in  this  setup?

 You  need  more  slope.  Amano  did  one  almost  same,  long  time  before.  Simply  copy  it.  That  will  work.

 Polya  -  Thanks.Even  i  was  not  too  keen  on  using  tennelus.Any  other  fg  plant  apart  from  hc  which  would  look  good?

 hi..
 
   more  slope  at  the  back  with  some  dark  coloured  substrate  would  make  it  more  attractive...
 
 E.tennelus  will  be  too  big  for  the  foreground..

 The  substrate  is  laterite  and  coarse  gravel.
 One  36W  PLL

 Hrishi
 
 The  scape  needs  to  be  sloped  from  back  to  front  with  the  slope  being  more  on  the  left  hand  side  back,  The  rock  arrangement  will  also  need  to  be  moved  to  the  left  hand  side  to  the  back.  Refer  the  link  below

 Thank  you  Sameer.
 Seetharam,  thank  you  for  the  link.I'll  try  moving  the  rocks.Had  some  queries  though.
 Are  the  rocks  looking  too  big  for  my  tank?
 Do  i  need  to  change  the  substrate?
 What  plants  can  i  add  more?
