Learn From Takashi Amano

Takashi Amano is a known nature photographer who have this extraordinary passion in setting up the miniature of  his art by making nature aquarium. Below is demo he made along with his assistants. I can’t understand what they are saying but if you understand them, feel free to post your translations below. 🙂

Some key points that we can learn from Takashi:

1. Don’t just put the rocks, add some art – Add some art in in setting up your nature aquarium. It’s not just about the shape but it’s about the proper arrangements where it will look more natural in style. The rocks were set upward to give a better scenery.

2. It is better to use the frameless aquarium – You can maximize the best view of nature aquarium if all you you see is the aquarium and not its frames.

3. Don’t put substrate on the rocks – Did you observed that he tried to brush the substrate from the rocks? Just let the substrate remain at the base so that plants will grow sporadically.

4. Tie the aquatic plants using stones – You will need to tie the plants on the cube shaped stones. This will prevent them from floating when you add water on it.

5. Use small fishes – Small colorful fishes such as Neon Tetra is more helpful to give emphasis on the view rather than the fishes. The small fishes adds to the beauty of the nature aquarium rather than stealing it.
