Wow man,amano should post a planted tank journal of that. It would be great to see his progress pictures. He is indeed the master of it all,having been able to bring nature right back to his own home.Now,if only we could have a close up shot of the tank...

It is a room - my friend Jonathan (who is the luckiest guy on earth) got to visit Japan and stay with Amano. He slept in front of that tank. GRRrrr.

Wow! You gotta be kidding!

How does one pull that off? Or is Jonathan more than just a mere mortal?

Jon's the one in red. Lucky fella. He owns a pond shop and was visiting Japan to buy koi. Guess it's all about who you know eh?

Here's Jon with Karen Randall and Kristel Kasselmann:


My local club is VERY lucky to have a fantastic set of plant gurus (DiabloCanine and Yoink included), and we recruit more all the time.
