From my understanding the tanks are maintained once a week by his helpers/students. Not exactly sure if Amano himself scaped the tanks.

Do you remember?
Hey Steve, the 2 tanks by the stairs have one MH lamp and 2 PC on the side.
The tanks seem to house his lower light plants. All the other tanks run just MH lamps if i remember correctly. The big wide tank with the sump, run 6 of the MH + PC fixture. Here is a bit better picture showing the wide tank.
GAH I WONDER WHAT THE ELECTRICITY BILL LOOKS LIKE!
