I continue to be inspired by the quiet art of Iwagumi and the pursuit of asymmetrical balance within an aquascape. I find the Zen principles in Japanese gardening and landscaping very inspiring and believe that gardens, whether terrestrial or aquatic are an personal expression of your relationship with nature. Comments: This scape is just over 15weeks old, and I would never have been able to achieve this result so quickly were it not for the fantastic suppliers who continue to secure us access to international quality product ranges like ADA as well as a splendid variety of plants seldom seen in our LFS. Thank you guys for helping us elevate our ability & capacity to be able to compete on the international stage which will continue to raise awareness and interest in the amazing Art of Aquascaping in this country.
