I was recently introduced the beautiful “aquascape art” of Takashi Amano, one of the most influential people in the aquascaping community. He introduced Japanese gardening concepts such as Wabi-sabi and Zen rock arrangement to create some of the most uniquely intricate, yet balanced fish tank compositions. His surreal, artistic aquascapes often mimic nature in their appearance, as he uses a lot of aquatic plants, river rocks, and driftwood. And guess what? He’s also… a photographer! Swoon.
The photos above are some of my favorite Amano-inspired fish tanks. What incredible mastery of aquatic landscaping… Doesn’t this just rock your fish-tank world? [I can’t wait to do this someday.]
