I like it but i think i prefer the large tank Tom Barr did.

Really? I think for aqauscaping Amano's is in a different league to Tom's client (its not Tom who does the scaping). However, for sheer "Wow" factor and entertainment value the Behemoth tank is more fun (although Mr. Amano's is bigger!) Perhaps we should do a poll?

I think they are both inspiring in their own way :)

I have seen pics of that tank of Amanos before... although I would guess that the pics I saw were at least a year after set up. If I can find them again I'll post a link back here.

Latest ADA 2008 catalogue as an update in this tank, changed quite a bit since then and now houses some lovelu Altums ;)
I prefer the Amano tank, wish I could have something like that!!! :D :D

I actually prefer Amano's.

The fish aren't to my taste in 'Tom's'. I suspect Tom may agree to a degree. The client's choice, after all...

I am still hoping to feature 'The Behemoth' as a Great Planted Tank in PFK. Nudge nudge, Tom. :)

I've seen that tank before. The first time I saw it it just took my breath away. Its stunning not just for its obvious wow factor but for the way it is in keeping with japanese aesthetics. If you look at the room that it is in it is in keeping with it yet it is visually grabbing. If you look at the fourth and last photo, the tank mirrors the vista looking out into the garden providing that balance. What makes this tank so good is the use of subtlety, there is nothing individually attention seeking yet put it all together and pow!

More pics please!

Two stunning tanks. I would say ´Tom´s client chose "goldfish type Discus". TA has altums the last time I saw it. Testimony to how important fish are to an aquascape.

Amanos tank is stunning! How much would you love one of those in your lounge? I know i sure would, I'd never watch the tv again! Would look amazing with a big shoal of discus in there tho. I also like the fact that you can walk all the way around it!
Now all I need to do is win the lottery.....

Thanks for sharing those pictures, some are even new to me. You will find details on filtration etc in the 2008 ADA catologe.
I prefure this to Tom Barrs.....its more natural and wild with subtle use of fish.
The guys in the picture eating around the table are from the Aquatic Gardening Assosiation.........Heads up guys, that will be UKaps in a few years from now! 8)

Ukaps Baby!
