Amano's small tanks from Book 2
I was just flipping through Nature Aquarium World book 2, which is the one with all those tiny tanks, where he shows them in actual, life-size, and it really shocks me to see the kinds of fish he puts in them.
I wanted to know what other people here think about it. I know Takashi is the guru, and he obviously knows what he's doing, but no matter what, I can't see how it's acceptable to put a school of cardinals or neons in a 5 liter tank. He also has some small tanks with, not one, not two, but several yellow rams, along with all the other fish and shrimp. Yes, the fish are well-taken care of, but still, there's not much room for these fish to do much moving.
Knowing that Mr. Amano is no noob, and that he knows how to take care of wildlife, what do you all think about his putting schools of microrasbora in a half-liter tank?
