Takashi Amano planted fish tanks: There are so many gorgeous specimens that I don't know where to stop! Amano started building aquatic landscapes in the 80's after an interest in aquascaping led him to found his own company, Aquatic Design Amano. He is the grandfather and original master of the wabi-kusa style of planted tanks (as opposed to the Dutch style more commonly found in the West). There is a museum in his hometown of Niigata, Japan, dedicated to his planted tanks.
Before all this, Amano traveled the world as a large format landscape photographer. You can see how clearly and vividly the photographic influence translates to his aquatic landscapes. Some more tanks: View the entire gallery here.
