I like how it's the same techniques, just with newer and nicer equipment.
Rehashed and revamped, and just as easy.
It's an old Dutch philosophy, not anything to do with the Japanese or Amano's aesthetic.
Very different in that regard.
My taste where formed from that and nature, not Amano, but he did have a great influence on all of us some way or another.
I think the tenchnique using nice emergent growth on a non CO2 tank is a really good idea. I'm also curious to see how Amano would view and consider it.
He often says he's looking for something "new", this is natural, and requires no CO2 and has the highest maximal light use efficiency, zero algae, better conditions for fish, easier methods to fertilize the plants etc.
You can very many sections of streams and lakes where plants grow emergently on snags.
Very common. This is also where the fish congregate.
