Halfway through...Seems like a great video....Have consider using different kind of background colour for your video? All white didn't really work for me. How about just a lil white around the tank or complete wooden brown background? may be even black?

could the plants be okay without ever adding water but keeping it very wet and moist? like in a vivarium?

It depends on the plants species.

Process videos are good, but try to do them not just about products but with the end customer in mind-- a video where the viewer actually learns something of value from a layout perspective too. The amount of substrate and slope is WAY insufficient for an iwagumi that has any kind of impact-- and I could say the same about the substrate. The main rock is far too small for a tank this size, and doesn't really have a shape with the prominence or impact to carry a layout as a main stone even in a smaller tank. Worse, it's not tilted to take advantage of light or shadow that could be made with the overhead light but just laid straight. The lack of any sort of attempt to create shadow anywhere is the layout's biggest flaw. Finally the supporting stones are soooo small, and being laid flat, they'd easily be covered by even the smallest foreground plants, even HC. I just feel that this video was all about pushing product, and none about spirit or design. If you are an ADA vendor trained by ADA, you should have picked up the basics of layout from them, and know that good design is good for business.

Nice video, the tank isn't level and also it would be nice if
there was a video done for people on a budget so that
we could all have a nice planted tank.
