Iwagumi revisited – Unipac featured in Practical Fishkeeping December 2010

Practical Fishkeeping, the magazine for those who really want to know about keeping exotic fish, produced a great article by Jeremy Gay about setting up Iwagumi aquascapes.

In the example he builds for the article he uses Unipac’s Okiishi artificial rock.
