    The scape by Stan Chung is amazing. I really like the layout and the hanging rock. Looks really solid.

    Stan is one of the top Malaysian Aquascaper, his work are amazing.

    Note on how many different species of plant that Amano used for this 3ft tank. Also the total quantity of the plants, this is what he mean by plant densely from the start.

    Hey Shadow

    Thanks for sharing this event with us other poor souls that didn’t have the opportunity to be there. I have a question that I wondered if you could answer for me if you know. We have seen a few of this scaping demos now and I am always amazed at the quality of the plants that are used. Are the grown submersed with CO2? They look to me like the final product, after you have taken away all the submersed leafs and stalks. Does Amano Sensei have a secret nursery that we deadly people don’t know about where they grow the plants submersed with CO2 from start? Am I the only one that have noticed this or am I the only one still in the dark? Thanks for you excellent treads Shadow!

    It would not surprise me if we they had some submerged plants ready on pots, after all it would not be hard to have them on a empty tank, on pots with good flow, nutrients and CO2, wish LFS's did the same. :)

    Actually the plant was purchase from farm. Amano only give the organizer list of plants that he want to use. Some farm do grow their plant submerse. From what I can remember from couples of farm visit, normally they grow stem plant submerse. Other plant like hairgrass, fern, anubias they grow them emerse. Probably because they are slow growing, thus emerse should be faster.
