A beautiful mess

By Leonard Ho 5 years agoNo Comments

I love the precision and perfectionism of Iwagumi aquascapes.  I love the vibrancy and composure of Dutch aquascapes.  But for me, only nature and jungle style aquariums can evoke a sense of, well, nature that brings the wild within the confines of our five glass panes.  There is tremendous beauty in this type of controlled chaos.  And while Iwagumi and Dutch aquariums are obviously carefully arranged, the same is true of nature and jungle aquariums despite their seemingly untamed appearance.  It’s not easy to recreate a natural scene that does not feel like it was done by the hand of man.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
