    Olá Paulo, what can i say about it :) totally insane the size of it, it's everybody dream to have at your living room and to a nightmare to keep clean and the bills...! :facepalm:
    For me it could get bigger fish on it, not monsters for sure :D but maybe more of the size of scalare for sure.

    Don't forget that the ticket to see amano's work also gives you the opportunity to see the whole oceanario as well so one advice based on my experience :rolleyes: take more than 8 gb :snaphappy: and full charged batteries! :banghead:

    Cheers for that! What an amazing looking creature, especially from that angle.

    I am so hugely impressed now...TA I salute you as the grand master!
    The plant health appears perfect, I can't see any cut stems or signs of maintenance and the scape itself is growing on me more and more. I really like how he's used large open areas to create an even greater sense of scale.... Now if I could just do that in my 60H.....

    Looks very clean and healthy, doesn't look lik a a lot of flow.(there probably is, but isn't very obvious). To me it doesn't look like high light, especialy on the lower tiers it looks like most plants are low light tolerant, but video can be deceiving. The large empty spaces may give a lighter impression also. Can anyone indentify the large (high) plants at 1.36?

    In one of the Sumida videos Amano mentions that he's using white sand to reflect light back around the tank to help compensate for the light penetration at depth difficulties. Obviously working here..

    Amazing tank. Truly enjoyable to watch.
    My fish happened to see the video of it while I was watching and are now all cross with me for not providing them with adequate space...

    Hey guys,

    Quick video from my last visit, this was edited by my hopefully future brother in law ;) on my visit last week. I make an appearance in the video somewhere lol was shot and edited by him, hope you enjoy, didn't want to make this too long, just enough to open an appetite and make you guys visit to see for yourselves :)



    Watch in HD.

    Cheers
    Paulo

    I was lost for words when I walked into the room, the size of the tank just hits you, when most of us are used to seeing tanks no larger than 120cm or less in real life. It is quite an achievement to create such an amazing aquascape, it flows pretty well across the whole tank and I do prefer the shoals of small fish in the tank.

    The plants are just amazing, the guys there are doing a great job in trimming the plants and keeping the tank looking so healthy, its great to see the plants growing to these sizes and see their full potential that we never really get to experience in our minuscule aquariums, if you can visit I really recommend it.

    It was a lot to take in and I could easily spend hours there just sitting down and admiring the tank, the background music is also awesome, sample on the video posted (hope not to get in trouble ;))

    Was just glad I was there to see it in person when it has already grown in, beautiful.
