nice. i bet its on MonsterFishKeepers site. that name sounds really familiar, is he famous, or the head of a company or something?? the last pic looks like itd be a nice restaurant. (even tho is sooo nice its got to cost a lot to keep running and a lot of skill to keep it all thriving, plus the water bill!)

but i know we all would love to be able to do that, it can be quite beautiful if done right (like clearly this is)

"Amano Tank" is a certain high class style of planted tanks if you will; Takashi Amano is not only the founder of this idea but yes he also opened a company that sell's these very supplies for these certain set up's. Its safe to say he's your Gorge Clooney (or which other Hollywood superstar) in the fish world

Not my style, but I'd love get a say in how to stock a tank like that. I'd also like to see how many people it takes to keep the thing maintained. He could go snorkeling in his own tank!

I literally thought the exact same things. Exactly. Now I'm freaked out. Mental telepathy?

That tank is absolutely brilliant. I always love seeing what Amano is up to.

I quite enjoy Amano's tank and where he is taking the hobby, kicking it up a couple of notches if not more. However many tanks that follow in his style, though I love the look, really aren't "fish" tanks but sculptures that capture a feel or a theme. What the style doesn't do is offer a great environment for many types of fish, lots of hiding places with muted light.

WOW. Where on earth did he get that piece of driftwood?! His tanks are awesome! Wonder if he'd consider keeping Arapima gigas, the biggest freshwater fish in the world? 15 ft. long, takes a tank of thousands of gallons, and comes from the Amazon. I want to keep one of those one day... Maybe breed them. Or not. But if anyone has a spare 2000 gallon tank lying around, LiveAquaria.com sells them here. And they actually sell African Tiger fish for $50 more.

lol, they say "a canopy is a must". Ok, let me walk over here to the fish store and buy a canopy that will hold down a 15 ft. long fish!

And where does he get the money to do this stuff?
