http://www.thegreenmachineonline.com/blog/takashi-amano-tribute-aquascape-by-james-findley-pebbles-in-the-footsteps-of-a-giant/ In this video you will see professional aquascaper and founder of The Green Machine; James Findley, creating a stunning planted tank in a huge 300x60x60cm aquarium. Whilst creating this video, we were all deeply saddened to hear of the loss of the photographer, designer and aquascaper ; Mr Takashi Amano, who was the pioneer that first started injecting aquariums with carbon dioxide which enabled the nature aquarium to be possible. He also founded and directed the company Aqua Design Amano, known as ADA, who are the worlds leading manufacturer of nature aquarium goods. Mr Amano has been an inspiration to the aquascaping community worldwide, as well as to all of us here at The Green Machine. Without Mr Amano The Green Machine would not exist as it does today. His legacy will live on the hearts minds and creations of all aquascapers. It is for these reasons that James Findley has renamed this aquascape Pebbles- "In the Footsteps of a Giant", in honour of Mr Amano. http://www.thegreenmachineonline.com/blog/takashi-amano-tribute-aquascape-by-james-findley-pebbles-in-the-footsteps-of-a-giant/ Shop for items and plants used int his video here: http://www.thegreenmachineonline.com

I really wish I could come by your shops and see your work. I really wish I had the money to set up tanks like you guys! They're so amazing. Whenever I have a stressful day at work, I come home and watch some of your aquascapes and relax.
In several other vid, James was pouring Penac P and Penac W before the Power Sand, while here it seems to be together, along with the Tourmaline BC and Bacter 100. Is there any particular reason for this?
Thank you for whomever might enlighten me, cheers!
Out of curiosity, is the filtration being done by two Eheim canisters? I saw the intakes during the planting stage, however I am not sure that they are all it takes to filter such a huge aquarium. You did remove them for the purpose of filming. :)
Thank you, looking forward for many more videos!
80% for the first week, then less until it's about 15%-20% water changes once a week. The cost for monthly maintenance should be about a hundred to two hundred U.S. dollars. This includes fertilizers($80), water cost($16$20), fish food($15-$30) depending on what fish you have, and the electric bills.
does it easy - medium or hard care?
does it easy - medium or hard care?
If i were a fish i would love to swim in one of your tanks! The plants and fish look so healthy!
Thank you for this amazing video once again. Greetings from Holland!

It gets kind of expensive as you go, because one can never be completely satisfied I guess... Then again nature aquariums are living and breathing pieces of art that tend to keep evolving, so it's nothing but a long process of transformation.
What I mean is that you can start with what you have and build upon that. And the greatest thing you get to build is experience. As for materials, you may find rocks and wood outside. Don't know about SK, but don't think I ever go along a river bank without at least seeing something interesting that may find a place in some layout. Then it's just a matter of washing, boiling or sterilizing the materials. Just make sure that the rock is inert and the wood is not rotten or contaminated. You don't always have to spend tons of money if your're really into the hobby.
This is one of your best tanks James. Your tribute is fitting.
Kind regards from Brighton,
Let me second this request. I would like to know more about other important parts of creating such a beautiful tank. How did you select the fish? How do you feed them? Maintenance?
This tank is really worthy tribute to master Amano.
How fitting. Thanks.
great work everyone at TGM
