This is admirable and part of why those videos are a joy to watch. I know the plant choices lean towards easier long term preservation of the original concept, but to me that is simply good planning.By comparing to the documentary videos, the layout remains authentic to design by Amano in 2013.
Some ADA setups you see on video (from their gallery) have very low surface agitation along with low flow. Coupled with low nutrients lowering Co2 demand, you can get by fine. Better preservation of all dissolved gases that way but in tank evaporation becomes more of a factor in influencing your Co2. It’s more aesthetically pleasing viewing the scape without bubbles blasting everywhere, more calm. My understanding is Amano was an advocate of lifting lily pipes up at night though to increase surface agitation.Something l have wondered about on certain scapes CO2 straight to surface and little visible flow
I can't even begin to imagine the maintenance on those though - I mean just trimming that carpet in the 7m tank would be a mammoth task.
One challenge of these giant planted tanks is maintenance. They have to do it in night hours when the aquarium is closed to the public, often not done until sunrise.
That’s ADA’s way.Thanks for the explanation makes perfect sense. And have noticed how ADA lift the lily pipes think it was on the Green Aqua visit to the NA gallery
Their content is timeless. This site has become heavily weighted towards scientific argument lately, which is great. However, thought the content list could do with something firmly planted in the art side for anyone new to the hobby. Bit of eye candy for inspiration.Thank you for posting the links to those videos, I have seen them all before but it was very good to see them again
I would love to just go and sit and soak up the peace and quiet of the garden at Amano`s home, seeing his tanks all set up would be a bonusThat’s ADA’s way.
An easier way... a couple of 2 litre jugs, remove some water to drop the water level overnight, pour back in when morning comes around. Far less broken lily pipes from suction cups failing.
