 With  the  Iwagumi  settling  down,  I  had  some  time  to  make  another  tank.  It  helps  when  you  have  empty  tanks  lying  around.  So  came  up  with  this.
 
 Now  this  is  going  to  be  a  moss  setup  essentially  with  few  other  plants.  Let  me  know  what  do  you  guys  think.  BTW  it  is  not  a  finished  hardscape,  but  about  90%  complete  hardscape.
 
 
 
 With  substrate  added.
 
 
 
 With  water  filled,  for  testing  the  tank  with  such  humongous  load.  Have  approx  200  kgs  of  rock  in  there.

 With  that  excellent  hardscape  I  would  use  only  minimal  amount  of  plants.  It  looked  better  without  the  substrate,  it  had  more  depth  and  character  I  feel.  IMHO  use  just  a  little  DHG  only  around  the  bases  of  the  trees,  Flame  moss  on  the  trees.  Fissidens  as  grass  in  the  mid  a  background.  Just  a  little  to  have  a  few  green  patches  here  and  there  and  maybe  add  another  tree  in  the  mid  right  peeking  out  from  the  canyon  type  area

 +  1  Mortis,  The  1st  picture  hard  scape  looks  great  Without  substrate.  ¬†Even  the  wooden  sticks  not  looks  good  to  your  tank.

 +1  with  Mortis
 Scape  without  substrate  or  with  a  very  thin  like  would  look  better

 Thank  you  folks  for  the  detail  feedback,  This  is  not  a  final  hardscape.  There  will  be  certain  addition  subtraction  to  this,  but  more  or  less  will  maintain  this  feel.

 @Dev:
 +1  with  mortis  and  Ganesha.  I  saw  this  scape  in  Facebook  first  and  I  had  the  same  opinion.
 I  was  little  afraid  to  tell  that,  since  I  am  very  much  fond  of  the  decorative  sand  or  beach  look  I  thought  it  was  just  me  Smile  .
 
 I  would  say  keep  the  hardscape  as  in  the  first  picture,  with  sand  to  a  level  as  much  as  water  is  there  in  that  picture.
 That  would  look  aweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesomeeeeeeeeeee.
 This  idea  is  truly  good  and  has  inspired  me  a  lot.
 I  mean  when  I  said  that.
 Before  submitting  this  post  I  again  took  a  look  and  must  say  the  hardscape  is  unque  without  the  substrate

 With  all  due  respects  to  the  master,  I  can  visualise  a  better  justice  done  to  the  fabulous  hardscape  by  reducing  the  height  of  the  substrate  to  around  30%  of  its  current  height.  Along  with  maybe  a  flatter  front  edge  instead  of  the  concave  curve?

 Thanks  once  again  for  the  fantastic  feedback  guys.  Keep  them  coming.  The  hard  scape  is  not  yet  completed  and  I  will  be  reducing  substrate.  Very  soon  you  will  see  another  update  regarding  this  scape.  I  am  very  happy  that   you  guys  like  the  hardscape.  I  was  apprehensive  about  public  opinion  about  the  hardscape.  You  guys  are  making  me  confident.  Thank  you  for  that.

 Have  used  Mseal  at  the  base  and  ADA  dust  along  with  clay  to  overlap,  then  dried  for  2  days  in  Full  sun.
