Nature Aquarium

An underwater, living zen garden I designed with my roommate for a space in our house. We took insipration from Takeshi Amano, the pioneer of the nature aquarium.

A 12 gallon, freshwater nature aquarium my roommate and I created.

Starting out - setting the landscape for the rocks with aquatic soil.

Creating a "hardscape" with Seiryu stone. Where is your eye natually drawn?

The tank after 4 months! The plants are supplemented with CO2 and fertilizer.
