This elegant aquascape by George Farmer captures all the elements of the classic Japanese Iwagumi. A careful selection of Seiryu rocks dominate the scene, layered in a manner that is as dramatic as it is balanced. The silent stones have been colonised by a singular species- a healthy forest of Dwarf hair grass; their soft wispy leaves contrasting strongly with the chunky stones. The whole scene is framed by an even bed of white sand. A dash of colour is contributed by the school of cardinal tetras. A minimalist approach such as this requires good tank husbandry/maintenance - it only works well if the tank is very clean.
