In my past discussions with the Lo Brother's (ADA specialists) I asked them what was more important, the aquascape or the fish selection? Their response was in sum, "there must be a balance between the aquascape, plants, hardscape and fish. All are equally important." Since they follow the Nature Style method which emphasizes balance and harmony, there was no surprised there. What did surprise me, was this balance of aquascape and fish selection wasn't acheived at the same time. In many scapes, I know the Lo's, and many others scapers out there, design the aquascape and let it mature before adding any fish. It was style over content so to speak... Do you scape first, add fauna later too? Why and when do you know when it's time to add fish? -John N.
