Takashi Amano’s Private Tank

In Build on April 25, 2011 at 09:10

Takashi Amano is the founder of Aqua Design Amano, an aquarium company that retails stylish, high-end, quality products. He is the pioneer of many aquascaping normals found today, such as pressurised CO2, Aqua Soil and the iwagumi style. His private tank measures 400cm in length, 150cm in depth and 150cm in height. Based on the dimensions of the tank, it holds 9 tons of water, however during his recent planted aquarium lecture in Malaysia, he said the tank held 15 tons of water. It is most likely that his filtration system holds the other 6 tons. With what is arguably the best aquascaped tank in this size category, we will let the pictures do the talking.
