Hi guys, posting from Japan.  I just recently attended the 2009 IAPLC.  It was a great event, and congrats to all the participants on the hard work for your aquarium layouts! Here's a video I made from my photos of the event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzTXEFnKCiQ

出た! Aquarium Design Amano International Contest-- Results out! 1147 entrants! Don't know how many of you there are out there, but those aquascapers who entered the ADA contest, I hope you're checking your mail boxes to see how you did. For those who don't know, ADA is the largest international aquarium design contest in the world.  It is probably the single most influential statement about the world skill of aquascapers, and gives a lot of info on the styles, innovations, etc. that have been happening around the world. The contest continues to grow, with over 1100 entrants this year, the contest gets fiercer and fier

For those looking at my gallery for the first time, please enjoy my aquarium designs.  I am a photographer/painter/illustrator/anime artist, yes, but my real creed is aquascaping-- that is, designing a scene of nature inside the aquarium.  Whether the motif be a mountain, seashore, river bed, or grassy patch on the sidewalk, with careful layout of stone and wood, and with careful care of plants and fish, one can create a piece of living art the truly catches the essence of nature.  Aquascapes are alive, and thus, have a truly captivating quality about them. I hope you enjoy my little gardens. Oh and check out my new blog: choutoshio.exblog

Great Art, id like to share some of your pics on our aquascaping page at www.facebook.com/aceaquascapes   after your approval, thanks
I just found you mentioned in an article I am reading on aquascaping. Sad to see no updates on here for a while but good to know you're alive on dA.

:+devwatch:ed for the future. :)
Ah, I actually entered a decent scape into the ADA 2013 contest. I won't upload it here until fall, but rest assured I am alive lol
Hey there! I love your aquascapes! Im new to them and I was hoping there would be a small community of aquascapers here on dA (its Art afterall!)
Im starting out my own little planted tank soon :)
I look forward to seeing more of your tanks ;)
your aquascapes are amazing! Major props!
scaping ... yes yes yes :clap:

I just started my first 50gal. Hope it turns out as well as your scapes. =)

Urm, I have some medium lighting, but getting some fuzz algae on my plants. I've been dosing Excel CO, but it's not helping drastically. Can you recommend a solution for me? :nirvana:
