Hey! I won't be able to listen in this time around (then again, I never really have the oppurunity. I even forgot when I was supposed to be on )

Can you touch on the subject of wabi-kusa? Is there another name for it? Because apparently its just a brand name, like calling a tissue and Kleenex. I'm seriously confused because on one hand, its ADA's sole idea and they are the only ones that make it, but on the other its a complete style and ADA can't say our creativity is trademarked.

Just curious to find out for myself and others.

Hey Da Plant Man,

We ran out of time without addressing your question, but I have a separate interview which I discuss that topic in:

Love the show Robert. I'd like to hear a guest speak about the Dutch tank and all that it entails. I have an aspiring Dutch tank, but so much emphasis is placed on the Nature Aquarium or Iwagumi styles now I feel the Dutch style is being phased out. In popularity at least.

I love Dutch tanks too! I don't know of anyone in the USA who is an expert on Dutch aquascaping, and having a guest from Europe on the show is difficult because of the time difference. Its a great idea though, and I wish I could find someone.

This last saturday I had David Lass on to talk about LED lighting.

well we had surprises of the BAD kind...

We had some technical problems in the beginning, which I exasperated, blogtalkradios phone lines went down for the first ten or 15 minutes of the show, but once we got Claus on the line it was fine from then on. The show is up in the archives for anyone who wants to listen to it, with the first ten minutes edited out.

It was interesting to hear his observation about southern India. The entire densely populated southern part of the country didn't have a major impact on aquatic plant diversity because there were not a lot of waste dumped into the rivers. There were no factories or large industries dumping toxic waste into the rivers. I can see from the pictures in this link that the water in the rivers are clear, interesting plants like Fissidens, Eriocaulon and Microsorum grow well. https://plus.google.com/photos/10983...12161418649985

I thought it was also interesting that he mentioned these clear rivers with dense diversity of plants were fed by underground springs, which is just what Tom Barr said. Tom said underground springs are rich in C02.
