    Very well done, but I prefer a more natural look based around the fish.

    I guess it could go in “Aquascaping” too, though as it’s just a link and a discussion (rather than a question & answer style thread), it’s probably more appropriate in here /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    I’d also however have a huge self-contained ecosystem which I imagine to be the height of the house and the width of numerous rooms!

    My problem with those tanks is indeed that they’re “unrealistic”. Not for the reason the others state – but that it’s unrealistic to think I could ever create something so beautiful and even less realistic to think I could ever maintain it

    I think they have a certain aesthetic beauty for sure much like an immaculately trimmed lawn. They are perhaps more living sculptures than anything else.

    Hi yeah sorry was in a rush when I moved the thread and Dunc’s right, this should go in ‘Aquascaping’. /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    I agree with Matt, they are stunning but it really isnĀ“t fishkeeping is it? I find it hard to believe that any fish would thrive in these set ups, shrimp however.

    It’s not fishkeeping and they are unnatural. I much preffer something more realistic. But that said, I admire the aquascaping skill of their creators. And their vision too. Where do you start planning some of those tanks?

    They look amazing, just turning fish keeping into an artform. Fishkeeping and planted tanks are all about water quality, get that bit right for what ever you are keeping and you are halfway there.

    I am with dunc.

    I like them and have treid to set up a few my self.

    They are all Amano tanks and here’s the thing – number one they take a lot of looking after to maintain like that and number 2 – they don’t last long – he changes them frequently, those tanks are never set up for more than a few months before being changed to something else.

    Amano’s best tanks are the more natural looking ones – he did a crackin’ Discus tank where all the plants were Ech. species but on a massive scale – it’s in his Nature Aqaurium World book one.

    As for fishkeeping – it’s not really – it’s underwater gardening with some fish (the less fish the better as they only muck up the plants!!!).

    I really love the moss tanks (e.g. no. 1 or 4), but with Pangio in it…
