I have had an Iwugami style tank. I learned 2 really important things.

#1 Put a lot of time and effort into securing your plants the first time. This will save you many headaches in the future.

#2 Don't add any invertebrates at first. Even the smallest pond snail will uproot your plants. If you want to add them, wait until your plants are established and have really good rooting to hold them down. My biggest problem was Dwarf Baby Tears, this is a very fine stem plants,...I know some people take time to sew each stem down...sounds like a lot of work but definitely worth it in the end if you do it right.

I still have old pics of it in my Aquariums..its the 37g. I was actually thinking of doing another on a smaller scale..plants can get expensive. I love the Iwugami look.

Hope I helped!
