180G Iwagumi

I've been working on this (very) slowly for over a year. I finally got everything together and had the means and time to do it.

Substrate: ADA PowerSand, Amazonia
Lights: MicMol G3 Pro
Hardscape: Acid-washed Black Seiryu stone

Still planning out which plants and fish I want.

Looking like a good start. Are you planning on running a sump (I see the overflow in the picture).

Any plans on CO2 and fertilizing? That's a decent amount of light energy and would likely require CO2 and a decent fertilizing regime to make use of the increased plant growth potential.

Yes, there is a nice big sump (~30 gallons iirc) underneath.

My CO2 reactor (NilocG) is plumbed in-line with the return from the pump, and I'll be using a pH controller to regulate CO2 delivery to the tank.

I fertilize with GLA macro and Plantex CSM-B micro daily on my high-tech tanks. Generally keep to their recipe/directions, with alterations based on growth and algae presence.

That's going to be stunning. Do you plan to use carpeting plants? What a beautiful start.

Yes! Just ordered:
-Micranthemum Monte Carlo
-Hydrocotyle verticillata
-Eleocharis parvula

Planning to order:
-Ranunculus inundatus
-Glosssostigma elatinoides

I also have a bunch of red stem plants on order. There's a small crop of Cryptocoryne flamingo growing in another tank that I may move in. I'm having a hard time getting ahold of some plants from online retailers. Everyone's out of something, so I have to pay shipping from 4-5 separate places to get everything; not eager to do that.

All in due time, I suppose.

Thank you for the feedback!
