the Future...

Not sure if this is the right place, but out of curiosity, where do ya'll see aquascaping in a few years?

I mean we started with plants to keep fish alive before the advent of the filter,

Returned to the idea of adding plants, had the idea of CO2,

Went to dutch aquariums (with apologies if this inaccurate),

and then to mr. Amano, and now seem to be going with some sort of mix.

People suggest that aquascaping is like art. I personally see it becoming more like art and expressing more. Like 'house of the flying daggers' or 'alone in paradise' from last years AGA.

On holiday.

I'm inclined to agree, Tao. I think Oliver Knott and others are blazing new creative trails. I've recently been experimenting with elements of bonsai - not just growing plants, but making plants grow the way you want them to. Same plant - multiple expressions in one tank. The talent pool is growing exponentially .
