ADA gallery

In this Japanese iwagumi from the ADA Gallery in Niigata, plant choice is constrained to a small carpet of Micranthemum 'Monte carlo' and moss. The focal point is the rock-mountain with its deep crevices and textured slopes. Our eyes are drawn to a narrow valley of pink sand that snakes itself through the mountain pass. Sparsely planted setups like these need good husbandry to be kept clean. Water quality must be good to keep algae at bay. Such setups show that tanks do not always have to be heavily planted to work.
