We kick off our 2nd season with a literal deep dive in the world of aquascaping and the huge influence of Takashi Amano and his company Aqua Design Amano. The hot trend in home aquariums is to focus on plants and hardscape (rocks, driftwood, etc.) to create a serene submerged world. We talk with the leading experts in the field, including 2-hour Aquarist Dennis Wong, plant guru Indra of AquaLush, and Lawrence of East Ocean, the 3rd generation of the family who’ve supported the aquarium scene in Singapore for over 4 decades.
We also visit with Elliot and Derek of Natura Aquatics and hear from one of their customers, who is part of the community of enthusiasts.
Plus, we travel to Hong Kong and talk with Dave Chow, winner of the IAPLC in 2007 and considered a living legend in planted tanks.
