i am planning for an iwagumi in my 10 gallon tank. currently i have it with driftwood etc(LINK to the current tank : MY CURRENT TANK)
It has become kind of boring now. so planned to make it an iwagumi. can't keep more than 1 tank and neither can i get a bigger tank so i am stuck with 10 gallon tank. options are pretty limited for me.
right now i am trying with various setups. the one which i like is this. the tank size is 20 x 10 x 12 inches. i would need to move things a little in this new setup but i will keep on experimenting and will update once i start the tank.
as my tank is small, i will stick with the same old plants. hemianthus cuba, hairgrass, hav eno idea about what else shall i keep in this tank and in which position. hairgrass for sure will be behind the rocks. and HC in front but what other plants and where??? suggest some plants for small aquariums and their desired positions (i know pogostemon H. and staurogyne etc) anything else????

thanks for the comment Rajiv and Madan sir.
i will try to take that large rock to the left leaning left. i still remember that this is what you did while setting up the tank at Prabhu's store.....i still have to follow that rule which you told us that day. drawing diagonals across the tank\s edges and then putting perpendicular lines to get the position of small and big rocks, with the bigger one always to the left. i guess now i am recalling it correctly

i am not very good in this but looking at it gives a feel of 3 different type of rocks, 2 on the left looks same, 3 smaller ones in the center are of same type, and the the biggest one on the right of one type......this one looks the best and center smaller once are looking the worst.
also go with odd number of rocks, even would give a more symmetrical feel....this is suggested for iwagumi setups. i think for this tank you can go with either 3 or 5 rocks....max. you can also try to keep the bigger one in the center and rest around it ??

The big rocks are looking awesome, but as mentioned by Binesh all are of different types and the 3 that are placed in the center wont look good at all in the setup... you can use the big 3, would look awesome...
