    I've always wanted a high-tech nano Iwagumi tank. After months of planning, I finally set it up and this is what it looks like step-by-step.

    Very nice video you have made, bro! Can see the calm and gentle way you treat the plants and tank. It is so zen!

    I really enjoyed that video, NanoScaper. It was cool to see how you set up the tank step by step, and I can tell you put a lot of care and effort into this. I look forward to any updates you might want to share.

    Man, it's nothing compared to your photos and videos. Still have a lot to learn in that area. Zen never crossed my mind when I set up the tank. I appreciate the compliment. Thank you. Hope I'll have something nice to show you at the next update.

    Thanks! Same here. They said that HC is for advanced aquarist but I went ahead and try it nonetheless. Let's see what happens.

    If it helps, you might want to check out this video about HC from Dennis Wong aka Xiaozhuang on this forum.

    Oh, man. You gave me too much credit. I'm just an amateur but I do hope that my video will motivate others to start their own nano aquascape since a big one might be out of reach for some. Thank you and glad that you liked the video.

    Thank you, Master. Do give me about four weeks to grow the plants and I'll post an update then. Anything I can improve on?

    Yes, it was a lot of planning and I jot down everything that was in my head until it was time to set it up. Will definitely post an update so stay tuned. Glad you enjoyed the video too. Thanks!

    I'm sure it'll look great once it's had time to grow. I'll see you then.

    It's amazing what CO₂ injection can do in a matter of four weeks. Looking at the growth rate in my nano Iwagumi tank, I think I'm hooked.

    Nope. Just a small fan.

    Thank you, jackychun. The HC and stem plants look like they're doing okay for now but the hairgrass is spreading slower than I expected. Any idea why?

    At eight weeks, a full carpet of HC is almost there for my nano Iwagumi tank. The other two plants are still growing slowly, though.

    12 weeks after setting up my nano Iwagumi tank and I'm still battling hair algae. I've made changes that will hopefully improve things.

    Hi bro, it is really nice to see the plants filling in the tank.

    Hairgrass might take more time to roots and spreading. It also need higher lighting to spread and grow, IMO.

    For the algae issue, may you do more water change to make sure tank is clean and reduce the lighting hours so less chance for algae to build up. Some floating plants would help to absorb excessive nutrients in the tank, so it would be good to prevent further algae.

    Thank you for the compliments and tips, jackychun.

    I don't trim the rogue (growing out of place) hairgrass anymore. I just pull them out carefully without disturbing the substrate. So much easier and if I do pull it with the roots, I'll re-plant it at the rear of the tank to fill the background.

    I've cranked up the CO₂ and did huge weekly water change to combat the hair algae. Guess what? It seems to be getting lesser and lesser now. The small number of shrimps probably helped too.

    Multiple prong attack on the green hair algae has produced much better results in my nano Iwagumi tank. Once cleared, I hope to add fishes.

    Getting much lesser algae in my nano Iwagumi tank. The other good news is that I've observed berried shrimps and spotted some shrimplets.
