I prefer the old one. Maybe just trimming a bit of the old leaves and re-arrange the grass floor would be better. I still enjoy the back where the Cryptocorynes and Nymphaeas grew and made a natural feeling.

The new one looks so empty so it wastes the above area of the tank. It looks clean and neat.

If we can combine the cleanness, neatness in certain areas and the natural growing plants of the old one could create a fabulous tank.

Weekly water changes is recommended in general., especially if you have a planted tank where you dose fertilizers. You want to remove excess nutrients from the water column so algae doesn't grow.

Hi James how are you. It is amazing piece of art and i am very much aprreciate your effort. I wanna asked you some simple questions. Can you pls tell me?? After this transformation of jungle aquascape.
1. Is there any need for artificial water cleaner filter?
2. And you are using small fishes in this aquascape if any fish die which is natural process. So, it will be create infection for other fishes then how can we get its body out of aquarium???
ShellysAshes - 4 years ago
1. There will be an external filtration system, almost all tanks need a suitable filter, not just to remove harmful substances from the water but also to maintain a water flow so that there is no stagnation.

2. The tank is so large that an individual death will have less impact on the water quality than in a small tank. On top of this, unexpected mortalities will be much lower in a tank like this that recreates the natural environment and is maintained by experts in the field. (the fish are almost never stressed beyond natural levels so less prone to diseases)

Also, water changes are necessary in all tanks which would remove harmful bi-products that are produced during the decomposition process. It's not just dead fish, it's also fish waste, rotting plant matter, leftover food that will lower the water quality. A balanced aquarium will contain a bioload of bacteria that convert bi-products into less harmful substances, and water changes will keep the water quality high.

Tell James it's fucking awesome ! LOL I love this so much better then the Amano style where 80% is water and only 20% décor ! I mean a few plants bogwood and soil and some fish ! To me it was empty and not as nice as it is now ! Just Remember reading Amano's first book he is nature lover and like painters on canvass he does it in aquascape ! Not nature way ! Some places where I went (snorkel) almost standing water where I seen this Jungle setting ! Of course there wasn't any African or south east Asian plants but as a style I'm talking about ! So kind of nature way is better I mean nature under water not a mountain hill side ! Yes it is beautiful terrestrial scape not under water ! OK this is my taste only ! But what I see here is by far my favorite and the way I do mine ! I spoil my fishes with plants they like and nibble on then just bare tanks or rocks or spearing few plants scape ! Plants gives out Oxygen and many other things for the fishes and living things in the tank ! Plants keeps the tank balanced and less off balance when you have no plants or only a few ! I never had sick fish in any of my heavy planted and established tanks ! But with out plants it was a nightmare and work and money !  Set up like this needs only bi-weekly water change what I find cause if the water quality and parameters is fine then why to change it ! I always aim at balance and the cycle ! RO water to top off but my tap water full of minerals what algae loves ! That is the main reason why I only do bi-weekly water change ! OK if you have RO and CO2 and UV and all sorts of ferts. then yeah but that is the expansive way and again not natural ! I try to use nothing ! Only good water good lights and only on timers a good soil and only bio filter ! That is all ! So again it's great and really nailed it this time so please tell him that it's one of a masterpiece ! Thumbs way up on this ! Thanks ! PS: Try more the nature way then Amano's way that is his style ! Amano is a nature painter with aqua design ! Peace out and keep the videos coming !

I'm thinking that if one of those pond experts builds a pond somewhere and its in top condition with its own filter unit and key aquascaping organic starter materials in a disturbed city park or forest preserve, nature is going to do the rest. The thing is I would want to see what happens over time like a few years. I got the idea from seeing stuff on t.v. where people are always doing plant tree campaigns and trying to reforest tropical areas by planting seeds. I actually did some forest garbage cleanup work years back.

Lhin Doh
Lhin Doh - 4 years ago
Actually no I don't work with aquariums. I actually work with terrariums and vivariums of a large size and similar to this type of tank. I use exotic lizards, snakes, insects,frogs and the terrestrial stuff but always small sizes. I am into the aquariums because they are plain awesome way beyond when I was younger. I worked in a natural history museum for years that's how I got to see what they missed out on as far as exhibits. Depending on where you are the zoos and museums are behind the hobbyist of this stuff in terms of new state of the art designs. What I am thinking about now though is to see how a healthy pond can attract new life and organisms and just what they the creatures would be even in urban settings. With the aqua-scaping work, I am seeing possible opportunities for the technicians of that to actually replenish damaged habitats. The only thing is I can't figure out how the filters and other stuff needed can be powered long long term in remote forest locations. I think this aquascaping work is the stuff of environmental engineering solutions just not noticed directly for it. Good luck on your project! and post if you can. These tanks are amazing until I saw too many to keep adding them to my favorites list- it became more work :-)

Lhin Doh
Lhin Doh - 4 years ago
Your right and I actually did see a tank like this one that was filled with small fish and crustaciens. It was actually awesome but as usual too rich to look at without seeing it directly. The tanks are probably best as museum exhibits but they bring to mind the ability soon for a person to be able to actually install and design outdoor ponds for increasing and stimulating biodiversity as well as repairing existing pond systems messed up by pollution etc.. I would love to see those subjects connected to them.

Personally (I'm no expert) I think it would have added to the tanks effect if, along with the small fish, some large, shy fish were added to "flicker" in the shadows and create a more mysterious and cool look.

Hello TheGreenMachine,
I see that many of the leaves of your Echinodorus Quadricostatus have been partially chewed off. I also see that you have the Amano Shrimp in your tank. I have the same Problem. I never see them doing it, probably they chew off the leaves in the night. I would have to feed them constantly to avoid that, but I think it would ultimately make them lazy to graze for algae. Is there a way to prevent them from destroying the leaves or do I just have to live with it?

Kind regards and thank you for your awesome videos!

both aquascapes are beautiful. i think, if TGM would be interested, that angel fish would be beautiful in this aquarium. the size and plants would make as few as 5-7 angels look beautiful, it would also add to the stock, being there are mostly corydoras and shrimp in this tank, having a few mid water fish would greatly add to the aquarium i believe.

AHHH! Mr. Findley! I was SO in love with the original Nature's Chaos design, it showed amazing scale, and showcased your brilliance as, my personal favorite, an aquascaper in the West, if not the World! Why?? Why go and change that beautiful work of nature-art? Of course those are rhetorical questions, I understand that  you did have a good opportunity to show others how to reinvent their scapes after a while, and doing so on a big scale as you did will no doubt help a countless number of us,  i do believe all I have is the videos you made of it and your genius at being able to compile all kinds materials and create out of them the different shapes, textures, and composites. 
My name is Matthew J. Di Serio and  i just want to thank you for reinvigorating my passion for the life aquatic, and all it brings, plants, inverts, beautiful scenes of captured nature, I could go on for ever. to put it short and sweet; thank you from the bottom of my heart Mr. Findley, and all the rest at TGM for once again showing me i can create and sustain beautiful living microcosms of nature. Hoping to see TGM in person one day. I may even move from Cherry Hill New Jersey to the UK! It must be great to be near Stonehenge! All my aquatic love and support,

100. comment for Nature's Chaos Transformed into a Jungle Aquascape by James Findley

CombatAnimal - 5 years ago
I'm stuck between the two aquascapes; they both have their pros and cons. In my opinion, the volcano scape had too much negative space and felt like the foreground was a bit too empty. The jungle scape, however, addressed this issue, but I think the immense magnitude and size of the plants in the center is too overbearing for the viewers eyes. Regardless of my opinion, the two scapes definitely capture the essence of nature.

Can't tell which one I like better lol.  The color of the original was awesome, but I'm trying to go for the jungle look in mine.

From a classic Amano-style nature aquarium POV, the pervious scape was better. However from an naturAL and cichlid-keeper (dwarf, discus and angels) POV, this scape is much better.

The original looked better indeed.
But this one looks amazing too.
More than that is an unbelievable transformation.
A iwagumi style mountainscape turned in to a jungle style is something I had never seen before.
But it works because the tank is massive enough to hold plants that can dwarf such a huge hardscape.
On a smaller tank the effect mighr not look this good.
