2ft - Tranquillity

I was give some special rocks from Borneo, nice rocks but the color kind of yellow-orange bright make it difficult to scape. So I try to make Iwagumi scape using it, with bright color plants.

- Glossostigma elatinoides
- Staurogyne repens
- Ranunculus inundatus

- Sundadanio axelrodi
- Neocaridina heteropoda var. 'red'

This is what the rocks look before cover by algae which make it slightly greenish.
