Can we pin this post!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.
Not wishing to be misunderstood, fully appreciate there is a need for both. Beyond that there is a huge amount of gratitude for everyone and anyone that contributes to UKAPS. This thread is simply comprised of videos that are clearly seated in artistic merit. A catalogue of the big ones that appear to have inspired a lot of people that have chatted about the matter.totally agree with this site becoming more and more scientific which has its place it's just not at all aspirational of what I think ukaps should be to the new comers
This generation of ADA scapers seem to have a really great contrast between their styles. You can almost pinpoint the scaper just from viewing the scape, which is promising. A noticeable divergence away from Amano led scape creations for the 2020’s. Daisuke Inoue’s repeated preference for hornwood and ohko stone in the 120cm and the other 180cm in the gallery especially stands out for all the reasons you outline @CooKieSThis one is stunning; perfect use of shadows, wood placement is top notch and clever use of ohko stones...very inspiring.
One of my favourites, great plant choice and fish selection. The black water apistogramma in that tank is amazing.I like how ADA often use rarer fish that aren’t the usual harlequins etc that we often see in aquascapes. There are so many suitable fish people can use if they think outside the box a little bit.120cm
