I keep meaning to read her book but that kind of put me off. I share her views on Amano style scapes and, to an extent, letting the 'scape' evolve how it wants to but she comes over as being rather rigid and against trying new things. It may just be a wierd pet hate but I'm very sceptial of people who overuse the word 'natural'. Aquariums are entirely an artificial environment even without the chemical fertilisers and CO2 injections, no amount of slap dash planting will alter that.
