I dream for a large aquarium like the one created in Mr. Amano’s house - Siak Wee Yeo / Malaysia
The most challenging part of this work is the structuring work. I need to arrange the trunk shape wood to be horizontal, but due to the limited tank space, I could neither express more to have a good perspective nor further improve the visual impression. As a result, I decided to proportion the trunk shape wood into different pcs, and “re-arrange” it by placing the bigger wood piece in the front and followed by the smaller piece behind it. Not only that, I choose Riccardia Chamedryfolia to be one of the main plants for my layout. I carefully attached Riccardia at the edge on horizontal wood to further express the natural feeling. Maintaining this plant is hard, due to the need to have very cold-water temperature, and the speed of growing was very slow.
I hope I can create a pure NA scape in near future but not for contest. I would like to enjoy the pure aquascape experience to suit my home design. I dream for a large aquarium like the one created in Mr. Amano’s house with large angel fish swimming in the living room.
